The Dallas Institute for Interactive and Spatial Computing

Our Focus

The goal of the University of Texas Dallas Institute for Interactive and Spatial Computing (UT-DIISC) is to incorporate activities in a broad spectrum of disciplines such as computational geometry, computer graphics, high-dimensional data analysis, human-computer interaction, information visualization, multimedia, and virtual reality. These activities enhance knowledge and human performance through bioinformatics, physically based modeling and simulation, and training and education applications. The University of Texas Dallas Institute for Interactive and Spatial Computing was established at UT Dallas in Fall 2015 with members from academia, industry, and international research institutions.
