Last Week to enter the 2018 Visualize This Challenge!
Final submissions for the Visualize This! Challenge are due no later than Friday, November 30 at 11:59 pm Pacific. Hosted by WestGrid and the Compute Canada Visualization Team, Visualize This! is a Canada-wide competition that celebrates the innovative ways visualization can help researchers explore datasets and answer important scientific questions.
This year the Visualize This! Challenge is comprised of two separate competitions:
- a scientific visualization challenge based on a molecular dynamics simulation dataset, and
- a humanities visualization challenge based on an interactive textbase from The Orlando Project
The two competitions will run independently from each other, with first / second / third prizes in each track. You can choose to work with one or both datasets. Submissions are due no later than November 30 (midnight PST).
To be eligible for a prize, you must be registered as a participant. Register here.
These are just a few of the prizes we have up for grabs:
- High-capacity external SSD drives
- Free registration and subsidized travel to a WestGrid 2019 Research Computing Summer School
- Your visualization showcased on the websites of Compute Canada, WestGrid, Compute Ontario, Calcul Québec, and ACENET.
- An opportunity to present to the research community at an upcoming Compute Canada/WestGrid event
How to Participate
- Register your interest.
- Spread the word using #vizthis2018.
- Download one of the two datasets and start working on your visualization.
- Final solutions must be submitted via email no later than November 30, 2018 (11:59 pm PST) When you submit, please include both your visualization and the workflow, be it a script, a state file, etc. so that we can reproduce your solution. Please do not attach large files (over 1 MB) to the email, but instead share them with us using any of the popular sharing tools such as Dropbox, Google Drive, WestGrid’s ownCloud, transfer.sh, WeTransfer, or a shared cluster filesystem. Late submissions will not be considered.
