Workshops

Dynamic Visualisation of Scientific Workflows with Workspace

Matt Bolger

Workspace, developed by the Computational Modelling and Simulation Group in CSIRO, is a powerful, cross-platform scientific application framework and workflow editor in which you can construct scientific workflows, reusable software components and complete applications quickly and easily. Workspace features out-of-the-box support for tasks like mesh processing, interactive 3D visualisation, volume rendering, plotting, provenance, networking and database access and can be easily extended through plugins. This plugin support makes Workspace the perfect glue for combining components that utilise existing frameworks and languages such as OpenCV, NetCDF, GDAL, PCL, C++, OpenCL, Fortran, Python, R and JavaScript.

This hands-on half day workshop will get participants up and running with Workspace, provide a taste of developing their own workflows (including inline 3D visualisation) and outline how users and developers can continue to learn more through the tutorials and wizards included.

High-performance Visualisation Using OpenGL/WebGL

Tomasz Bednarz

Abstract
In modern data science, accelerated visualisation techniques are required to explore data sets in a robust way. This workshop will provide introduction to OpenGL, which is the most widely adopted 2D and 3D graphics API in the industry, bringing thousands of applications to a wide variety of computer platforms. In addition, it talks to compute platforms such as OpenCL or CUDA, and enables developers/scientists to create high-performance, visually compelling graphics software applications. The workshop will include introductions and hands-on exercises to basic concepts of hardware rendered graphics, shader language and also web based version of OpenGL, called WebGL. Short introductions to OpenCL and new Vulkan APIs will be also showcased.
