In collaboration with SeSe, this year's Scientific Visualisation course will be held from 26-th to 30-th of November in Uppsala, with specially invited guest-lecturer, Alex Telea, who is the author of the course book "Data Visualization: Principles and Practice" on which the course is based itself.

The Scientific Visualisation course deals with methods that offer a way to see the unseen, how to select appropriate methods for a given data set, possibilities and limitations with methods, and how to use visualisation toolkits. During the course, you will learn to explore your data interactively in 3D or programmatically using ParaView - an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and visualisation application. While ParaView platform is developed for quick build of visualisations and data analysis using qualitative and quantitative techniques the tool is also well suited for analysis of extremely large datasets using distributed memory computing resources.
