Ph.D. students of VISUS in Vienna and Salt Lake City
Two Ph.D. students of the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart, Karsten Schatz and Patrick Gralka, started their international three months' fellowship in May 2018. Both are part of the Collaborative Research Centre 716. They are involved in the research of dynamic simulation of systems with large particle numbers and deal with the visualization of big data.
Karsten Schatz is jointly responsible for the "Interactive Visualization of Protein-Solvent Systems' Dynamic and Complex Properties" in the subproject D.4. At the Institute of Visual Computing & Human-Centered Technology of the Technical University of Vienna he explores with Assoc. Prof. Ivan Viola how Virtual Reality applications can be used in DNA nanotechnology. E.g. the 3D visualization should be also a solution for DNA simulations, which is not sure yet.
Simultaneously Patrick Gralka, subproject D.3, does his studies at the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. He works with the scientific group of Prof. Valerio Pascucci and investigates the processing and distributed rendering of data sets with several billion particles or points for a use case in the 3D messurement technology in a cooperation with the Intel® Corporation (Intel® ICPP) and the Faro Inc. The aim is, to render the enormous amount of points on high performance computing clusters with the frameworks "MegaMol" and "OSPRay" to enable the streaming of the pictures to a distant workstation.
We wish good look to them and a lot of new experiences at their international exchange.
