Maxine Brown : Chair, SIGGRAPH '92 Chicago – SHOWCASE
The ACM SIGGRAPH 92 Showcase event uniquely illustrated interactive and collaborative computer-graphics research, applications and products that relied upon high-performance computing in a networked environment. More than 35 projects illustrated ’science in action’ using workstations networked to local supercomputers or to remote resources. Showcase consisted of 12 demonstration booths (a workstation, large-screen projection display, an audio amplification system and electronic signage), each sharing 3 different projects. Adjacent to these booths, the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) premiered the CAVE, enabling groups of attendees to experience multiple virtual-reality applications. A selection of PHSColograms, on loan from (Art)n, were hung on the outside walls of the CAVE. Principal organizers were Tom DeFanti (UIC/EVL), Larry Smarr (NCSA/UIUC), Rick Stevens (Argonne National Laboratory), and Jim George (Mesa Graphics). Maxine Brown (UIC/EVL) was SIGGRAPH 92 Conference Chair.
