Agenda for the UWM-based Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) Science Visualization Workshop,
August 25-26, 2014, Enderis Hall 107
Central time (VSCSE site lists EST)
Monday, August 25, 2014
10:00-11:15 Introduction to Visualization
Goal of visualization: to convey information. Examples: Illustration vs. exploration, static vs. interactive. Info-vis vs. Sci-vis data.
11:30 - 12:30 Intro to Information Visualization
What is info-vis data? High-level commercial tools; Low-level tools
1:00 - 2:15 Intro to Scientific Visualization
Data as a function mapping a domain into a range. 2-, 3- and 4-D meshes. Attributes on meshes. File Formats.
2:30 - 4:00 Scientific Visualization with Paraview
Introduction to Paraview. Lab - visualizing a complex dataset (potentially hands on). Animation. Re-using visualizations on new datasets.
Tuesday, August 26:
10 - 11:30 Scientific Visualization with VisiT
Introduction to VisiT. Lab - visualizing a complex dataset (potentially hands on). Animation. Re-using visualizations on new datasets.
11:45 - 12:30 Scripting
12:30 - 1:00 lunch
1:00 - 2 Parallel Visualization
Architecture. Running Paraview and Visit in parallel. Optimizing.
2:15 - 4:00 Remote Visualization at TACC and special topics
Systems. Remote Access. Immersive Visualization.
If participants would like to follow the Paraview and VisIt labs hands-on exercises, they should install Paraview v. 4.1.0 from http://www.paraview.org/download/ and Visit v. 2.7.4 from https://wci.llnl.gov/codes/visit/executables.html on their personal systems.
Stay tuned, there may be datasets to download.
