IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa students enrolled in 3-D computer-based modeling courses at the Image Analysis Facility (IAF) will exhibit their work Dec. 14-19 at the Patient and Visitor Activities Center on the 8th floor of the John Colloton Pavilion (JCP), UI Hospitals Clinics.

An opening reception will be Monday, Dec. 14 from 3 to 6 p.m. in the East Room, 8th floor JCP. Refreshments will be served.

"Our courses have come a long way since we started teaching them and the students' work just keeps getting better and better," said Steve Beck, a computer consultant who has been developing and teaching courses in 3-D computer-based modeling at the IAF for the past seven years.

Located in the Eckstein Medical Research Building, the IAF is a central research facility for UI faculty, staff, students and interested non-university clients. The facility provides expertise in computer-based scientific applications, workstation technologies and high-performance computing.
