SC15: Birds of a Feather – Scalable In Situ Data Analysis and Visualization Using VisIt/Libsim

As ultrascale simulation is developing, so is the need to interpret the data without slowing down workflows. This session, proposed by Intelligent Light and approved by the committee, will present successful uses of Libsim and build a community to share in situ experiences and lessons learned. Libsim is a popular in situ infrastructure that enables tight-coupling of simulations with VisIt, the highly scalable visualization engine created by the US Department of Energy.


Session Leaders:

  • Brad Whitlock (Primary Session Leader) – Intelligent Light
  • Cyrus Harrison (Secondary Session Leader) – Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory 

Thursday, November 19, 1:30PM – 3:00PM ROOM:13A

ISAV2015: First Workshop on In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis and visualization is driven by the desire to save I/O costs and time, increase accuracy with transient analysis and full utilization of HPC resources. Intelligent Light is a member of the ISAV Program Committee and will participate in this workshop bringing experience from real world work on ultra scale simulation.

Chair/Organizer Details:

  • E. Wes Bethel – Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Venkatram Vishwanath – Argonne National Laboratory
  • Gunther H. Weber – Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Matthew Wolf – Georgia Institute of Technology
