Chris Johnson
Springer author Chris Johnson from the University of Utah was honored with The 2010 Visualization Career Award in recognition of his technical achievements and leadership in scientific visualization. He received the award from the IEEE VGTC (Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee) at their annual conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dr. Johnson was given this award for his extraordinary technical contributions in scientific visualization, especially in the areas of biomedical and computational field visualization.
Johnson is co-editor of the book series Mathematics and Visualization and a member of the editorial board of the journal Computing and Visualization in Scinece. In addition, he has published in Springer journals.
His research in scientific visualization and scientific computing is important not only because it is innovative but also because it has important real-world applications in a number of areas, including scalar and vector field visualization, problem solving environments, and biomedical computing and visualization.
Chris Johnson earned his Ph.D. from the University of Utah in 1989. He is a Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and holds faculty appointments in the Departments of Physics and Bioengineering. In addition, he is the Co-Director of the NIH Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing and the DOE (Department of Energy) Visualization and Analytics Center for Enabling Technology.
About the Award
The Visualization Career Award was established in 2004. It is presented every year to an individual to honor that person’s lifetime contribution to visualization. It is given by the IEEE VGTC a formal subcommittee of the IEEE Computer Society .
