[SC2] Launch of 2017 Visualization Challenge + Presentation: Simple Data Management with Signac
February 2, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Simon Adorf (PhD Candidate, Chem. Eng.) will give a presentation about “Simple Data Management with Signac“.
ABSTRACT: We will give a brief introduction to the signac data management framework for agile computational workflows, followed by presenting interactive examples using jupyter notebooks hosted online. The signac framework aids in the management of large and heterogeneous data spaces. It provides a simple and robust data model to create a well-defined indexable storage layout for data and metadata. This makes it easier to operate on large data spaces, streamlines post-processing and analysis and makes data collectively accessible.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a laptop in order to be able to follow along.
The Scientific Computing Student Club, partnered with MICDE, the U-M 3D Lab and NVIDIA, will officially launch the 2017 NVIDIA Visualization Challenge aimed for students to use the latest visualization tools and technology to show their research data in creative ways. The first prize will include sponsorship to show their work at the Supercomputing ’17 Visualization Showcase, and more. Join us at the meeting to learn more.
