The IEEE SciVis Contest 2012: Data Now Available

The IEEE SciVis Contest 2012 is an official event of IEEE VisWeek 2012. This year’s contest targets the field of computational material science, particularly atomic configurations. The goal is to devise a visualization that allows for exploring the phase transitions of a particular ferroelectric material while decreasing the temperature gradually.

Further contest details and the public data for the contest are available on Kitware’s Midas3 installation.  The data from the previous IEEE VisWeek contests are also available on that site.
