Visualization Design Contest

The problem proposed for 2010 Visualization Contest was focussed on assisting neurosurgical planning through visualization. Two comprehensive data sets were provided along with relevant questions.

There were a total of 11 submissions (the most viscontest has had so far). The quality of submission was very good overall. For each submission, three reviews were done by visualization experts and two reviews were done by neurosurgical domain experts for top 9 of 11 submissions. The detailed break up of review scores is available at the website http://viscontest.sdsc.edu/2010/.

The VisContest committee has determined that there will be one winner and three honorable mentions as follows
