UCSC 3D VizLab Open House

Thursday, May 30, 2013  2:30-4:30pm

Join the 3D VizLab for an open house at the 3D Astrophysical Visualization Laboratory (a.k.a. the 3D VizLab), where we will be presenting a range of 3D scientific visualizations, both on our 3D TV and our virtual-holographic workstation, zSpace.

In 2012, the UCSC-based University of California High-Performance AstroComputing Center (UC-HiPACC), directed by Joel Primack, teamed up with UCSC Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics Enrico Ramirez-Ruis to create a visualization research lab in which new, innovative 2D and 3D scientific visualizations and visualization techniques could be tested and developed. They are well on our their way, and would like to invite everyone to come see what they’ve been up to.
The 3D VizLab is connected by a 10 GB/s fiber optics link to UCSC’s new Hyades astrophysics computer system (3000 cpus with 4 GB/cpu, Nvidia Kepler20 and Intel Phi accelerators; a PB storage system will be installed in June).
They hope that the 3D VizLab will provide a valuable resource to both the graduate and undergraduate UCSC research community, and an ideal space for multidisciplinary collaboration and research.

Please send any questions to Nina McCurdy nmccurdy@ucsc.edu. In addition, please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested in attending.
