Visualization and small things

Who and when?
Dr. Guido Reina, postdoctoral researcher at the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart (VISUS), is going to visit our University on Thursday, October 22nd 2015. His talk will start at 2:00 pm in the Visual Computing Lab C 061.

Topic: Visualization and small things
Molecular dynamics has become a commonplace approach for prediction and verification in natural sciences. It is also a good example for how increasing computational resources and capabilities add to the continuous growth and availability of scientific data. VISUS at the University of Stuttgart has several project partners from thermodynamics, physics, and biochemistry who make extensive use of MD. In this talk, I will give an overview of the work I was involved with over the last few years. I will point out our general method and some specific examples of molecular dynamics visualization. I will also touch upon two of our publicly available frameworks, MegaMol and OGL4Core. The former is a GPU-centered research prototyping platform while the latter is mainly aimed at teaching modern OpenGL via continuous abstraction.

Vita:
Dr. Guido Reina is a postdoctoral researcher at the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart (VISUS). He received his PhD in computer science (Dr. rer. nat.) in 2008 from the University of Stuttgart, Germany. His research interests include large displays, particle-based rendering, and GPU-based methods in general. He is a principal investigator of the subproject Visualization of Systems with Large Numbers of Particles for the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 716.”
