The World of 3D Web Visualisation

The summer in Italy is not seeming to end but my stay here does. In my last post I showcased my work which was by that time almost done. From then, the looks didn’t change much, only the underlying stuff

The end, or just another beginning?

As summer ends, I can’t help but rememb Jim Morrison (The Doors) singing “this is the end, my only friend, the end…”. This post also represents an end. It is the end of my Summer of HPC project and hence

It’s Alive!

In my previous post it was all just dry theory and nothing to show (apart from a great food picture). Today the post will only be about presenting the “cool stuff”, and for that, just for you guys, my buddy

The triple P conundrum

Pasta, pizza and ParaView are the topics I want to talk about in this post. As a Catalan guy, I’m used to the Mediterranean diet and it is impossible for me not to talk about food when staying in Italy.

When Big Data Becomes Too Big


As a guy from Central Europe, upon arriving to Bologna my first reaction wasn’t subtle: “Damn, it’s hot!”.  After two weeks of getting used to the weather, I can say that I am still boiling. I will return to temperatures

Introduction to ParaView Catalyst

In my previous article you can find a brief introduction to the In Situ Visualization Technique which allows to explore simulation data during the run-time without involving storage resources of a supercomputer. Now it’s time to go a little bit further

Dare to visualize – Tornado effect

Sometimes in life we have to accept dares, challenges or we even have to make self commitments to achieve success. By the way, this is human nature, after reaching one milestone we look to the next, and according to me:

In Situ Visualization Technique

Traditionally, the process of performing numerical simulations consists of three separate steps: First, the input parameters (such as initial or boundary conditions) are specified, then the simulation is executed and finally, in order to determine the result, it is necessary

Visualization tool for olfactory bulb data

A clear understanding of the spatio-temporal dynamics of olfactory bulb mitral cells in representing an odor input is very difficult to achieve experimentally; for this reason, the activity-dependent effects of olfactory bulb network self-organization generated by the mitral-granule cell microcircuits remain poorly understood. To deal with this problem, we have constructed olfactory bulb microcircuits using realistic three dimensional (3D) inputs, cell morphologies, and network connectivity.

Exploring Mars Surface – 3D Visualization of post processed MARSIS data

MARSIS is a radar carried by the European Space Agency spacecraft Mars Express, and probing the interior of Mars to look for ice and water. To validate identification of echoes from subsurface structures, electromagnetic scattering from the Martian surface was simulated using HPC. Simulations will make it possible to use automated procedures to detect subsurface interfaces, or to study the correlation between real and simulated surface echo strengths to detect unusual surface properties.

Konstantina Lazaridou

I’d like to thank the PRACE SoHPC for the opportunity to work in CINECA’s super computing center. It is a very important experience for me and I am fully enjoying my presence here. The working environment is incredible, regarding both the people working here and the facilities. I have been looking forward to practicing computer science in a high quality organization, such as CINECA, for a long time.
