WestGrid is pleased to present a free hands-on workshop on scientific visualization using ParaView. All disciplines and experience levels are welcome. You do not need to be a current WestGrid account holder to participate in this workshop. Any researcher who is interested in learning more about tools and techniques for visualizing data sets is invited to attend.

ParaView is an open source, multi-platform data analysis and visualization application. ParaView users can quickly build visualizations to analyze their data using qualitative and quantitative techniques. This workshop will explore the basics of scientific visualization with 2- and 3-dimensional data sets through hands-on exercises.

Attendees will need to bring a laptop and should have ParaView installed on their laptop before the workshop. Wireless networking will be available during the workshop.
