Envisioning the Grid

January 29, 2003

At last year's SC2002 conference in Baltimore, Berkeley Lab racked up its third straight win in supercomputing's annual Bandwidth Challenge with a data-gobbling visualization of colliding black holes. When it comes to remote scientific visualization, says Wes Bethel with a smile, "we're the kings." Now Bethel and John Shalf of the Computational Research Division's Visualization Group have followed up their SC2002 success by writing a good chunk — including the guest editorial — of the… Read More »
