The future is being invented at GVU. Our researchers are pushing the boundaries of interactive technology, and exploring how technology can further societal goals in domains as diverse as health, education, entertainment, and civic responsibility. By bringing together a multidisciplinary group of faculty and students, spanning all six colleges at Georgia Tech, the GVU Center provides a unique home for research than spans the boundaries of traditional academic units. These are exciting times for GVU, and for Georgia Tech. Our faculty and students' research continues to lead the world in many areas at the intersection of computing technology and people. The news highlights in this report give a sense of not only the level of excellence they have achieved, but also the societal relevance of their work. My own priorities are--first and foremost--to ensure that GVU continues to be a world-class incubator for this dynamic community of research.
