Abstract:   Large-scale HPC simulations with their inherent IO bottleneck have made in situ visualization an essential approach for data analysis. This direct, on-site coupling of the visualization to the simulation can supplement and even replace the traditional approach of performing visualization post-mortem or on separate clusters: an approach that is inefficient for very large simulations. We encourage contributed talks on methods and workflows that have been used for large scale parallel visualization, with a particular focus on the in situ case. Presentations on codes that closely couple numerical methods and visualization are particularly welcome. Speakers should detail if and how the application drove abstractions or other kinds of data reductions and how these interacted with the expressiveness and flexibility of the visualization for exploratory analysis.

Targeted Audience
The targeted audience are those who seek performance throughout the entire simulation process. Contributions will highlight existing or potential bottlenecks, and investigate how these might be overcome in real use cases. Of particular interest are parallel simulation frameworks, tool chains and their scalability.
