Make use of visualization to analyze your scientific data!

NSC Course Announcement, AVS/Express

AVS/Express is a powerful, object-oriented development system with interactive modular data flow system for data visualization. It runs on both UNIX and Windows platforms and permits the development of full applications in a visual programming environment. AVS applications developed on desktop platforms under Linux or Microsoft Windows can, without modifications, be migrated to the large scale visualization equipment such as the NSC Onyx2 and the Virtual Reality systems at ITN on Campus Norrköping.

NSC has acquired a licence for the use of AVS/Express at Linköping University. The license gives all departments at the University a chance to use AVS/Express developers edition at a minimal cost to participating departments. For further information on the license and terms for participation please contact NSC.

An Introduction Course in AVS/Express will be held on Monday, May 21, 2001, in the A-house in computer room Valhall, entrance 15.

The full day's course will be presented by Matt Cooper and Paul Lever from Manchester Visualization Centre (MVC) and will cover the use of the AVS/Express system to read scientific data, build visualization applications from the modules provided with the system and carry out a range of visualization tasks. The course involves a number of hands-on exercises which will be performed on the computer systems provided.

Paul and Matt will be happy to discuss particular application areas of special interest to the participants during the breaks or after the course.

MVC has had a long association with Advanced Visual Systems and is host to the International AVS Centre which maintains a large open repository of modules developed by users to provide new features specific to their areas of interest, and placed in the public domain for use by the Express community. Both Paul and Matt make use of AVS/Express in their work at MVC, as developers of applications, new visualization methods and working to add new features to the AVS/Express system.

The course will start at 10:00 and finish at 16:30 including hands-on practical sessions in the morning and afternoon.

The number of places is limited to a maximum of 16 so places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Registration: Please register by sending an email to Anders Rönnbrant at andro@nsc.liu.se before May 7, 2001.
