This year’s Challenge is focusing on processing and visualizing large datasets with parallel rendering. Any dataset that is too large to be rendered on a standalone desktop/workstation would qualify for this competition.

The competition is open to anyone affiliated with a Canadian post-secondary institution (college or university) or research organization. This Challenge provides a valuable learning opportunity to enhance your visualization skills, no matter what your research area may be, so participants from all research fields are encouraged to enter.
