Citing the AVC

When using the Advanced Visualization services students, faculty, and researchers should cite the AVC properly.

The recognition of the AVC resources used to perform research is important for acquiring continued funding for the next generation of hardware, support services, and our research and development activities in advanced technology integration at USF.

At minimum, a citation should include:
