Abstract:   Large-scale HPC simulations with their inherent I/O bottleneck have made in situ visualization an essential approach for data analysis. In situ coupling of analysis and visualization to a live simulation circumvents writing raw data to disk for post-mortem analysis – an approach that already became inefficient for today’s very large simulations. Instead, with in situ visualization, data abstracts are generated that provide a much higher level of expressiveness per byte. Therefore, more details can be computed and stored for later analysis, providing more insight than traditional methods. We encourage contributed talks on methods and workflows that have been used for large scale parallel visualization, with a particular focus on the in situ case. Presentations on codes that closely couple numerical methods and visualization are particularly welcome. Speakers should detail if and how the application drove abstractions or other kinds of data reductions and how these interacted with the expressiveness and flexibility of the visualization for exploratory analysis.  

Targeted Audience 
The targeted audience are those who seek performance throughout the entire simulation process. Contributions will highlight existing or potential bottlenecks, and investigate how these might be overcome in real use cases. Of particular interest are parallel simulation frameworks, tool chains and their scalability.
