    Scientific Visualization on Advanced Architectures



Additional Information:

    This panel discusses the issues involved in performing scientific visualization on advanced architectures, the problems that need to be addressed when using an advanced architecture within a visualization environment, and the features that should be included in the next generation of advanced architectures. The focus is not “whiz-bang algorithms” that have been developed for a high-performance machine, but rather, the problems en- countered, solutions found, and benefits realized when high-performance and/or programmable special purpose hardware is integrated into existing visualization environments.
    The panel brings together researchers involved with several different visualization projects undertaken on unusual hardware architectures to enhance interaction, computation, and/or insight.
