Scientific Visualization Deadline Extended to August 21st

SC15’s Visualization and Data Analytics Showcase Program provides a forum for the year's most instrumental movies in HPC.  Six finalists will compete for the Best Visualization Award, and each finalist will present his or her movie during a dedicated session at SC15 in a 15-minute presentation. Movies are judged based on how their movie illuminates science, by the quality of the movie, and for innovations in the process used for creating the movie.

Review and selection process:
Submissions needed to include a movie (up to 250MB in size) and a short paper (up to four pages including references).  The short paper should describe the scientific story conveyed by the movie, how the visualization helps scientific discovery, and the "state-of-the-practice" information behind making the movie.

Each submission will be peer reviewed by the Visualization and Data Analytics Showcase Committee. Criteria for revision include:
  •     Compelling visualization

  •     Visualizing data involving HPC in a significant way (whether through simulation or data analytics)

  •     Meaningful and compelling science story

  •     Description of visualization techniques necessary to accomplish the movie
Finally, submissions should support SC15's overall theme "HPC transforms.”
