Scientific Visualization

Room 1.067 / Medienlabor HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart), Universität Stuttgart, Nobelstr. 19, D-70569 Stuttgart


2014, Monday Oct. 20, 09:00 and  Tuesday Oct. 21, 15:30


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.
