Computer-rendered images can be beautiful, even breathtaking at times. But what does it take to produce them?
The US National Science Foundation (NSF) is conducting a campaign that looks at the simulation, modeling, and visualization technologies behind these fantastic images. From 10 July through mid-August, the #beautyofcomputing campaign will celebrate the aesthetic and creative possibilities of computing and the power of computer-rendered images to communicate science.
Partner organizations include the Extreme Science and Engineering Environment (XSEDE), the Coalition for Academic Supercomputing Centers (CASC), and the Computing Community Consortium (CCC).
So if you create, use, or simply appreciate computer-rendered images that bring science to life, share them through social media using the #beautyofcomputing hashtag. That way, the NSF and other enthusiasts (like iSGTW) can re-tweet, favorite, or highlight your content.
