Bill Sherman participated in the panel presentation “The Trials and Tribulations of a Visualization Laboratory” at the Department of Energy Computer Graphics Forum. Bill presented along with Laura Monroe from Los Alamos National Lab, Ken Moreland from Sandia National Lab, and Sean Ahern from the University of Tennessee. Attending the forum were a host of experts working in computer graphics for high-performance computing systems, including many from the DOE National Labs, plus collaborators working in US Military HPC installations as well as university collaborators. DOE Office of Science program manager Lucy Nowell was also a participant in the forum. The panel was organized by Jamison Daniel of Oak Ridge National Lab.

The Computer Graphics Forum focuses on sharing techniques for scientific visualization at the high-end scale of computational science. Participants share solutions and problems in the HPC arena, helping the overall community perform at a higher level. Indiana University benefits through sharing information and building relationships with researchers working on tools and solutions for issues similar to those the IU community encounters.

Attendees include representatives from most of the DOE HPC centers, where they share advancements in high-end visualization technologies from the past 12 months, and engage in conversations with collaborators from universities and some commercial organizations
