Interactive High-Performance Computing

The power of high-performance computers comes in their ability to generate answers quickly, and to enable the study of large and complex problems. Interactive simulation environments can allow for real-time manipulation of model parameters, rapid prototyping of algorithms and applications, and the use of human pattern recognition in simulation.

In this minisymposium, the speakers will consider practical means of obtaining such interative control and visualization in high-performance computing environments. The speakers will discuss a variety of techniques and technologies developed for this purpose with examples of their applications.
