In conjunction with the 22nd ACM International Conference on Supercomputing

June 7, 2008, at Kipriotis Hotel
Island of Kos - Aegean Sea - Greece

Advance Program

Supercomputing has been the major drive of the field of visualization. Visualization enables scientists to make sense of the vast amount of data generated by their massively parallel simulations. The recent advancement of GPU, Cell processors, and multi-core technologies suggests new approaches to interactive graphics and visualization, leading to another wave of active research and development in visual supercomputing. The first International Workshop on Super Visualization (IWSV08) aims at fostering exchange between visualization, graphics and HPC researchers to accelerate the development of visualization technologies for meeting the forthcoming challenges.


IWSV focuses on the specific topics including, but are not limited to, the following:


We solicit submissions of papers presenting advanced prototypes, systems, algorithms, tools and environments for "Super Visualization". General survey papers indicating future directions of "Super Visualization" are also interested. Please see the submission guideline page.


All accepted papers will be included in workshop CD-ROM to be handed to the attendees. After the workshop, a hardcopy proceedings will be published by ACM or Springer LNCS. A small number of authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to a special issue of Scientific Programming (IOS Press).
