The ever increasing scale of today’s HPC simulations with their inherent I/O bottleneck makes in situ an essential approach for data analysis. Nowadays, the rate of data generation easily exceeds available bandwidth or storage capabilities significantly. Consequently, analysis and visualization has to be coubled in situ to a live simulation in order to facilitate comprehensive investigation. In doing so, data abstracts are generated that capture much more information than otherwise possible.
The “International Workshop on In Situ Visualization” provides a venue for speakers to share practical expertise and experience with in situ visualization approaches. We encourage contributed talks on methods and workflows that have been applied in this field. Speakers should detail if and how the application drove abstractions or other kinds of data reductions and how these interacted with the expressiveness and flexibility of the visualization for exploratory analysis. As in the previous years, we also strongly encourage submissions on approaches that either did not work at all or did not live up to their expectations. We expect to get first-hand reports on lessons learned and pitfalls to be avoided.
