Dr Marcus Hanwell from Kitware Inc. "Tomviz: Visualization of Tomography and Reproducible Data Processing Pipelines" Monday 11 September - 2pm Atlas Visualisation Facility (RAL, Harwell Campus)
Software "Show-and-Tell": http://www.tomviz.org/ Contact: Sri Nagella (srikanth.nagella@stfc.ac.uk) / Martin Turner (martin.turner@manchester.ac.uk)
 
The open source Tomviz project was developed to address these challenges of materials tomography, managing a complex series of steps going from raw data to reconstructed visualizations using a reproducible data pipeline. Tomviz recently made its 1.0 release, collaboratively developed by Kitware and Cornell. Up until now it has focused primarily on S/TEM tomography for materials at atomic resolutions, but is now entering an exciting phase of expansion to support a broader array of tomography researchers. The pipeline is also being extended to execute out of process, optionally using HPC/cloud processing resources.
 
Tomvis offers a cross-platform desktop application, leveraging Python, SciPy, and NumPy coupled with the powerful ParaView, VTK and ITK projects to offer a specialized interface for materials scientists. The pipeline offers Python data operators that can be edited in the interface, saved, rerun, and edited further to process, visualize and export data with a view of the 3D tomographic data. We are actively seeking input as we enter this new stage of development, and would welcome open data sets that illuminate diverse use cases that are currently presenting challenges. I will also show some related projects looking at data storage, sharing, and dissemination on the web using an open data platform.

Research Software Engineers, the Second Conference will be held at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester on the 7th-8th September 2017. The deadline is Friday 28th April, with an early deadline of Friday April 7th for those who want to apply for £250 travel bursaries. http://rse.ac.uk/conf2017/calls

RSE UK-USA Exchange; Marcus Hanwell from Kitware has been awarded an EPSRC grant to exchange information across related RSE groups in 3D tomographic visualisation and processing. The schedule so far is:

  • Tuesday 5 September 2017: University of Manchester 'software show-and-tell'
  • Wednesday-Friday 6-8 September 2017: ToScA @ University of Portsmouth
  • Monday-Tuesday 11-12 September 2017: RAL (Harwell Campus), STFC
  • Wednesday 13 September 2017: Daresbury Labs, STFC
28/08/2017 - 00:00

CINEMAXIII follows up on the successful CINEMAXII summer school, where you get the chance to get teaching and hands on experience with the complete workflow of high-resolution tomography analysis.

 

Over 5 days, you will get introduced to data acquisition, 3D reconstruction, segmentation and meshing and finally, 3D modelling of data to extract physical parameters describing flow or mechanical properties. Teaching and exercises will take place in close interaction with top experts in the field. The whole workflow will be implemented in a python programming environment that will enable you to learn and tweak the analysis methods in detail.

 

The Summer School is typically awarded 2.5 ECTS by your university. You will get a diploma describing the course content.

 

The venue is at the beautiful and historical Fuglsang Manor, on Lolland, Southern Denmark. 

 

Limited number of participants: Priority is given to students enrolled at one of the partners of the MAX4ESSFUN projectAarhus University (DK), Chalmers University of Technology (SE), Lund University (SE), Malmö University (SE), Technical University of Denmark (DK), University of Copenhagen (DK), University of Gothenburg (SE) or University of Oslo (NO)
