Each year at the renowned international conference for visualization, the IEEE VIS, the so called SciVis Contest takes place. This year, we, the staff of the Computer Graphics and Visualisation Group of the TU Dresden, together with colleagues from the Visualization Research Centre of the University of Stuttgart, have won the contest.
With the SciVis Contest the visualization community can confront themselves with challenging visual analysis tasks on real data scenarios. This year’s contest asked questions about large ensemble data sets of chemical processes of salt dissolution, namely the appearance and influence of viscous fingers. The entry by TU Dresden was deemed being the most wholesome and versatile solution, and thus gained the winning edge over its competitors.
