    Talk Title: Scientific Visualization Research at ARL

    Abstract: A typical scientific visualization process involves the use of a favorite visualization toolkit to read the simulation data stored on a file system. Once the data is loaded, computational scientists will use the data analysis capabilities provided by the visualization toolkit to analyze the data, in an attempt to understand the output of a simulation. The scientists will then use the visualization toolkit to generate images and movies from the data to further understanding of the data. In most cases, a high performance computing center will have visualization staff members that can help the scientists to create a more elaborate movies for presentations. In an attempt to provide the computational scientists with alternative visualization technologies, the visualization team at ARL has extended ParaView to support 3D immersive and interactive visualization running on the zSpace virtual reality display. Furthermore, for large scale simulation datasets, we have also extended ParaView to include the capability for high-resolution interactive visualization.

    Biography: Simon Su is a Computer Scientist at the US Army Research Lab. He received his PhD from the Department of Computer Science, at the University of Houston in 2001. He has 14 years of experience in virtual reality and scientific visualization research and development. He is currently working on using large scale high-resolution and virtual reality technologies to support data visualization to enable scientific discovery and exploration of large scale scientific data. His research interests include interactive information visualization to support data analysis, and applying 3D immersive and interactive technologies to enable research in other interdisciplinary field including education, and journalism.
