The output from leading-edge scientific simulations is so voluminous and complex that advanced visualization techniques are necessary to interpret the calculated results. Even though visualization technology has progressed significantly in recent years, we are barely capable of exploiting petascale data to its full extent, and exascale datasets are on the horizon. This workshop aims at addressing this pressing issue by fostering communication between visualization researchers and the users of visualization. Attendees will be introduced to the latest and greatest research innovations in large data visualization, and also learn how these innovations impact scientific supercomputing and discovery process.
