See ParaView in Action at SC15

November 17, 2015

SC15 is off to a great start, and we are pleased to have ParaView prominently featured at the conference. In addition to being represented in many of our conference activities, which we announced last week, ParaView is being highlighted by several of our collaborators. This weekend, for example, ParView was showcased in two sessions by Paul Navratil at the Intel HPC Developer Conference, titled “TACC and Intel SDVis Workshop: ParaView with SDVis.”

Want to know where else you can see ParaView in action during the conference? Read below to find out!

At Kitware’s Booth (#2639)

Demonstrations on “GPU-enabled, ParaView Catalyst In Situ Simulation Running Live on Titan” will be held Tuesday, November 17th, at 12:00 pm and Wednesday, November 18th, at 2:00 pm.

Marc Nienhaus and Mahendra Roopa from NVIDIA will present “Interactive, Scalable Volume Visualization with IndeX and ParaView” on Wednesday at 5:00 pm.

For a complete list of Kitware’s booth and conference activities, please visit our SC15 web page.

At Intel’s Booth (#1333)

At the Intel Booth, ParaView with Intel’s OSPRay and Intel’s OpenSWR rendering libraries integrated, running on a cluster with Knights Landing and Intel(r) Xeon(r) processors connected with Intel(r) OmniPath fabric, shows the ability for climate scientists to interactively view and explore “vortex eddies” near land masses and ocean floor features that can help scientists understand climate change.  The visualization was created using data from the recently-developed Model for Prediction Across Scales-Ocean (MPAS-Ocean), which is designed to investigate climate change at global high-resolution (5 to 10 km grid cells) on high-performance computing platforms. Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) ran the simulations and collaborated with Texas Advanced Computing Center’s (TACC’s) and Intel’s visualization teams to show the almost 500GB data set running interactively with incredible visual fidelity.

At Texas Advanced Computing Center’s (TACC’s) Booth (#548)

The TACC team will be demonstrating pvOSPRay (ParaView + Intel OSPRay) on a 98″ Ultra High Definition 4K screen rendering a variety of data, including Enzo cosmology simulations, groundwater flow through limestone karst, Earth mantle convection, large virus molecular modeling, and subsets of the Model for Prediction Across Scales-Ocean (MPAS-Ocean) kinetic and salinity datasets.

At NVIDIA’s Booth (#1021)

NVIDIA is previewing an early version of the ParaView visualization application that integrates NVIDIA IndeXTM, a scalable GPU-accelerated solution for high-quality visualization of large volumetric and surface data at interactive frame-rates. For more information, please read this blog entry by Bhushan Desam.

At the Scientific Visualization Showcase

ParaView was used in multiple of this year’s showcase movie submissions. In fact, two of the submissions were done entirely in ParaView:

  • Gasoline Compression Ignition: Optimizing Start of Injection Time
  • Visualization of Ocean Currents and Eddies in a High-Resolution Ocean Model

ParaView was also used in part for the following submission:

  • Visualization Of Airflow Through The Human Respiratory System: The Sniff

Check out the movies for yourself at the showcase on Wednesday, November 18th, at 10:30 am.
