 "Preparing for a Lunar Impact" is on how 3D software is used in collaboration with telescope observations of the moon to simulate the surface to coordinate a planned rocket impact for research investigating the possible presence of water particles.

"An Interactive, Multi-Modal Workspace for Physically Based Sound" discusses research in producing simulations of (realistic) physical sound through new approaches to virtual programming and interactive screen based solutions.

"The New Frontier of Creativity and Innovation" is a few pretty pictures and a plug for Pittsburgh. Not much technology, programming or graphics but I have to say I liked the idea of Chalkbot even if it wasn't explained.
