3D Exploration

The amount of computed information in simulation sciences is constantly rising, due to the ever-increasing performance of computers, and at the same time improving concepts and methods in scientific computing, engineering and mathematical modeling. This information flood can be countered by improved methods for analyzing and exploring numerical simulations, and embracing the latest developments in 3D technology and ubiquitous mobile devices.
In cinematic terms, simulation scientists are story-teller, camera men, producers and editors at the same time, yet with a slightly different inclination. The exploration of simulations in 3D, as well as the exploration of 3D technology and concepts for numerical simulations, are increasingly important aspects in scientific visualization.

Curriculum Vitae

Sebastian Ritterbusch graduated from the Unversity of Massachusetts and the University of Karlsruhe (TH). In 2004, he received the Distinguished Teaching Award of the State of Baden-Württemberg (Landeslehrpreis), and received his doctoral degree in Mathematics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). At KIT, he researched the mathematical aspects of scientific visualization in the simulation sciences, and was the head of the Computing Laboratory for Scientific Visualization with projects in close cooperation with industry for example in mobile and remote visualization. He currently is continuing his research with academic and industrial partners, as well as in cooperation with the public sector, for efficient exploitation of 3D-Technology for data analysis and scientific visualization and communication.
