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

Did you know ..?

that SDSC has limited the core file size to 32MB.
To make good use of the core file size it is recommneded using the MP_COREFILE_FORMAT environment variable (or its associated command-line flag -corefile_format) to set the format of corefiles to lightweight corefiles.
See Thread article Issue 4, February 2006 for more details.
