European Organization for Nuclear Research-CERN

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world's largest and most respected centers for scientific research. It operates the world's largest accelerator together with the most complex scientific instruments, which are used to study the basic constituents of matter-the fundamental particles and the forces that hold them together. These studies, carried out by some 10,000 scientists from all over the world, are expected to shed light on some of the mysteries of our universe. Twelve Intel ISEF finalists will be selected to travel to CERN to meet with researchers, see the experiments, enjoy Geneva and the beauty of Switzerland and France.

Fondazione Bruno Kessler

The Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK) is a leading research center located in Trento, Italy. WebValley, started in 2001, is the FBK Summer School program for interdisciplinary scientific research. A team of enthusiastic and motivated high school students and FBK researchers accept a project challenge proposed by a scientist. This year’s project will study a new type of interface to big data and on-line spatial data analysis in 2D/3D cell environments. It is planned to extend the use of open source GIS and WebGIS solutions to micro/nano scales. The project shall enable the sharing between scientists of multi-scale studies, the overlay of cell models and real data, and user interaction based on Kinect and Android interfaces. FBKs Board of Directors will award Intel ISEF finalists full fellowships, including travel to Italy, to be part of the WebValley team from June 17- July 7, 2012.
