Each year, when the National Science Foundation (NSF) sends its budget request to Congress, it includes about a dozen research “nuggets:” short descriptions of the very best NSF-funded research results across all the areas of science and engineering. This year CAVE2, a highly novel large-scale virtual environment developed by the UIC Computer Science Department’s Electronic Visualization Laboratory, was one of those nuggets. In particular, the report highlights CAVE2’s use by a team of UIC CoM neurosurgeons for 3-D brain modeling.
