The Information Analytics and Visualization (IAV) Center is a Centers of Excellence at
IPFW. It opened on February 23, 2011 with a $500,000 grant awarded from the
Lilly Endowment Inc. through the Talent Initiative program. The center serves as a
valuable resource for northeast Indiana that strives to support excellence in teaching and
learning at IPFW while contributing to the development of the region through research
and innovative endeavors. The IAV Center conducts information analytics and
visualization research, provides state-of-the-art resources for faculty and students to
engage in multidisciplinary research, and develops collaborative projects with regional
industry and other research institutions. For more information, click here.

Analogical Constructivism & Reasoning Lab (ACoRL)

The Analogical Constructivism and Reasoning Lab (ACoRL), led by professor John Licato at IPFW's
Computer Science department, is a new research lab devoted to cutting-edge research in articial
intelligence. Our overall approach is loosely guided by the analogical constructivism (AC) approach, and
our research aims to develop, test, and explore the implications of AC. For more information, click here.
