SDSC hosts Data for IEEE design contest

—Subhashini Sivagnanam

The IEEE Visualization 2006 Contest has set the theme as "See What's Shaking". The subject is the TeraShake 2.1 earthquake simulation data set. The goal of this contest is to design a visualization that is effective at answering domain-science questions on real data sets (such as the TeraShake 2.1 data set).

Photo: TeraShake 2.1 Simulation TeraShake 2.1 represents a physics-based simulation of a magnitude 7.7 earthquake on the Southern San Andreas Fault. The TeraShake 2.1 simulation was performed by scientists at the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) and researchers at San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) including Kim Olsen, Steve Day, J. Bernard Minster, Reagan Moore, Yifeng Cui, Amit Chourasia, and Philip Meachling. Data storage is provided by Data Central at San Diego Supercomputer Center.

Information regarding submission and deadline can be found at the Contest Web page.

For more information, please contact Natasha Balac or Steve Cutchin

that Home directories should not be used for Batch jobs
Home directories are good places for login scripts and source files.Because it is NFS-mounted (slower than GPFS), this area is not suitable for storing large amounts of output from batch jobs. Increased home directory quotas for non-I/O intensive work and CVSROOT area for storing CVS directory trees are provided upon request. Users can request the CVSROOT area by emailing Larry Diegel
