NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Visualization Contest Applications due August 3

June 22, 2012 by Francesca Verdier

In support of the IEEE Symposium on Large-Scale Data Analysis and Visualization (LDAV) 2012's  visualization contest, LDAV organizers are offering compute time to participants through a NERSC allocation awarded by ASCR.  The LDAV Visualization Contest focuses on the area of visualization of extremely large datasets. The goal is to devise a visualization or a visualization algorithm that allows exploration of a specif HPC dataset. The primary challenges will be the size of the computational grid, the number of co-located variables, and the time series. The contest aims at demonstrating how visualization algorithms can be scaled to very large computational infrastructures and handle extremely large datasets.

The deadline to apply is midnight Eastern time August 3, 2012. See the Visualization Contest webpage.
