Compute Canada is launching an exciting new Data Visualization Challenge this fall called Visualize This.

Who is Eligible to Participate?

The competition and Q&A session is open to all researchers affiliated with a Canadian post-secondary institution (college or university). Participants from all science fields are encouraged to enter. The competition dataset is from the Earth Sciences area and provides a valuable learning opportunity to enhance your visualization skills in all research areas.

Prizes up for grabs include high-capacity SSD drives or up to $1,000 towards registration and travel to HPCS 2017, Canada’s premier Advanced Research Computing (ARC) conference, at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON (June 5-9, 2017).

The top visualizations will also be showcased on the Compute Canada website and in Compute Canada’s booth at Supercomputing 2016 in Salt Lake City in November.
