PRACE Summer of HPC 2015 Best Visualisation Award

Simos Kazantzidis – In-situ molecular dynamics + Demo Using GUI with PELE

Simos achieved an elegant visualisation with an original combination of representations, creating an impressive and usable front-end with a combination of charts and 3D representations of molecules. The combination of 2D and 3D representations side by side, the interactivity and the effective use of colour produced a user interface that demonstrated routine ease of use for end users. Overall, his visualisation was of a high quality and represented an excellent technical achievement.
