RENCI (Image 1) Weather data and visualizations surround researchers using the Social Computing Room at the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) Engagement Center, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The room uses 12 projectors to create a 360-degree display that allows researchers to share data and visualizations in novel ways, experience virtual worlds, interact with colleagues over long distances and gaming scenarios. The 360-degree display can be operated as an extension of a desktop machine and applications. Founded in 2004, the Renaissance Computing Institute is a major collaborative venture of Duke University, North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the state of North Carolina. It combines the strengths of state initiatives and three world-class universities with the social, business and research opportunities of the Research Triangle and the state of North Carolina. The "renaissance" in RENCI evokes both its collaborative atmosphere and the breadth of its intellectual activities. (Date of Image: March 2008) [See related image Here.]
