Scientific Visualisation

Enterprises & SME Research & Science
Scientific Visualisation


This two day course is targeted at researchers with basic knowledge in numerical simulation, who would like to learn how to visualize their simulation results on the desktop but also in Augmented Reality and Virtual Environments. It will start with a short overview of scientific visualization, following a hands-on introduction to 3D desktop visualization with COVISE. On the second day, we will discuss how to build interactive 3D Models for Virtual Environments and how to set up an Augmented Reality visualization. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.

Members of other universities and public research institutes: 120 EUR
Others: 400 EUR (includes food and drink at coffee breaks, will be collected on the first day of the course, cash only)


Programming experience in Fortran or C


HLRS is part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in Feb. 2012. The mandate for the PATCs is as follows:
"The PRACE Advanced Training Centres will serve as European hubs of advanced, world-class training for researchers working in the computational sciences." (see D3.2.3)
This course is a PATC course, see also the PRACE Training Portal and Events. For participants from public research institutions in PRACE countries, the course fee is sponsored through the PRACE PATC program.


Additional information can be found, e.g., at
Visualisation department at HLRS, COVISE.

Cancelation policy

If you cannot come to the course, please send an email to the organizer as soon as possible. This would allow us to accept additional participants from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
NO-SHOW: Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops (because it is to expensive to produce unused copies of the slides for them).


maximum of 30 participants in Stuttgart (according to the seats in the rooms).


Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
