tific Communications and Media Systems at the National Center
for Supercomputing Applications. Ms. Cox has exhibited computer
images and animations in more than 100 invitational and juried
exhibits during the past nine years, including shows at the Bronx
Museum of Art in New York, the Everson Art Museum in New York, the
Feature Gallery in Chicago, the Feature Gallery in New York City,
the Fermilab in Chicago, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography
in Chicago. She has authored many juried papers on computer
graphics and scientific visualization and received the
Coler-Maxwell Medal for Excellence in 1989. Her work has been
reviewed or cited in more than 75 publications, including Time,
National Geographic, Wall Street Journal, and IEEE Computer
Graphics and Applications. Ms. Cox spent a sabbatical working
on an IMAX film, Cosmic Voyage, for the Smithsonian
Institution's National Air and Space Museum. As associate producer
for scientific visualization and art director, she has orchestrated
scientific visualization software, data, and design for Pixar
Animation Studios, Santa Barbara Studios, Princeton University, the
University of California at Santa Cruz, the San Diego Supercomputer
Center, and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.
Ms. Cox received an M.F.A. in computer graphic arts and a B.A. from
from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
WARREN J. KATZ is vice president and cofounder of
MäK Technologies. His responsibilities include corporate
operations, new business development, and program management.
MäK's corporate goal is to provide cutting-edge research and
development services to the Department of Defense in the areas of
distributed interactive simulation (DIS) and networked virtual
reality (VR) systems and to convert the results of this research
into commercial products for the entertainment and industrial
markets. MäK's first commercial product, the VR-Linkä developer's toolkit, is the most widely
used commercial DIS interface in the world. It is an application
programmer's toolkit that makes possible networking of distributed
simulations and VR systems. The toolkit complies with the Defense
Department's DIS protocol, enabling multiple participants to
interact in real time via low-bandwidth network connections.
VR-Link is designed for easy integration with existing and new
simulations, VR systems, and games. From June 1987 to October 1990,
Mr. Katz worked for Bolt, Beranek, and Newman on the SIMNET
project. He was the resident drive-train simulation expert,
responsible for mathematical modeling of the physical systems and
software development. Mr. Katz received B.S. degrees in mechanical
engineering and electrical engineering from the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.
