The grant will enable a visit from Marcus D. Hanwell (Technical Leader, Kitware Inc. USA) to visit some of the main tomography groups in the UK. Marcus is leading a project on “Open-Source Visualization and Analysis Platform for 3D Reconstructions of Materials by Transmission Electron Microscopy.”
On his visit to the UK he will be presenting the "tomviz" product - tomographic visualization and pre-processing within the ParaView software library - at the following locations:
- 5 September - University of Manchester: X-Ray Imaging Lunch-and-Learn session; Research IT Visualization team; Inverse Problems Group, School of Mathematics.
- 11 September - Diamond Light Source, STFC RAL (Harwell Campus) Scientific Computing Department Seminar; installing software in the visualization facilities co-located with the University of Manchester research staff within the RCaH (Research Complex at Harwell)
- 13 September - STFC SciTech Daresbury Labs public seminar at the Hartree Centre focusing also on Chemistry visualization as well as tomography.
If you wish to meet Marcus to discuss or join the project please contact Martin Turner. If you are interested in applying for a travel grant then please visit the grant website. The deadline for applications is the 1st of each month until all the funds are disbursed. Research IT would be happy to help with your application so please get in touch if you have an idea.
