Description: “We discuss the development and operation of an open-source web-based publicly-available data archive, providing images of skin lesions, associated diagnostic metadata, and annotations of clinical features by leading experts in dermatology.“



Scientific Data Analysis and Visualization with VTK and ParaView

Cory Quammen, Kitware, Inc


Description: “I discuss the integration of Python in VTK and ParaView, open-source software packages for producing 3D visualizations of scientific data.”


Development of Large Image Analysis Workflows in the Context of “SlideAtlas”

Dhanannjay “Djay” Deo, Kitware, Inc

Brian Helba, Kitware, Inc


Description: “We will discuss lifecycle of the large image analysis application development in the context of "SlideAtlas", an open source interactive visualization and analysis platform for large image datasets.”



Docker for Improved Reproducibility of Scientific Python Analyses

Matthew McCormick, Kitware, Inc


Description: “Docker allows scientists to create a reproducible computational environment that can be easily created, versioned, archived, and shared. In this talk we give an introduction to basic Docker concepts and describe how to uses it with the scientific Python stack.”



Wrapping C and C++ Libraries with CastXML

Brad King, Kitware, Inc

Bill Hoffman, Kitware, Inc

Matthew McCormick, Kitware, Inc

Michka Popoff


Description: Automated wrapping of C and C++ libraries requires parsing of the source code and generation of an abstract syntax tree that can be consumed by other tools. For this task we introduce CastXML, the next generation of GCC-XML, based on the Clang parser.
