P’Con – Embracing new solutions for in-situ visualisation

8 December 2021
12:30pm - 2:30pm

by Jean Favre, senior visualisation software engineer at CSCS, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre.

The upcoming release of ParaView v5.10, a leading scientific visualisation application consolidates its implementation of the Catalyst API, a specification developed for simulations and scientific data producers to analyse and visualise data in situ.

Join Jean Favre, senior visualisation software engineer at CSCS, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre,  to learn new in-situ visualisation solutions.

Jean will start by reviewing some of the terminology and issues of different in-situ visualisation scenarios. Then, you will have the opportunity to briefly review some early Data Adaptors for tight-coupling of simulations and visualisation solutions,  followed by an introduction of Conduit, an intuitive model for describing hierarchical scientific data. Both ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent use Conduit’s Mesh Blueprint, a set of conventions to describe computational simulation meshes.

Jean will then present CSCS’ early experience in adopting ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent with two concrete examples of instrumentation of some proxy numerical applications.

Embracing new solutions for in-situ visualisation sessions is part of the first PaCER Conference – P’con: A week where Pawsey continues setting the pace for exascale. 

Registration is required
