Visual Abstraction in DNA Nanotechnology

Tutorial on Biological Visualization

Date: Thu, 5 September 2019 at 9.00-10.30



In this tutorial, we describe the challenges, insights, and solutions when developing a visualization system for the in silico design of DNA nanostructures. These nanoscale objects are increasingly abstracted to reduce visual complexity. We describe the abstraction along the aspect of scale and dimensions where a multitude of visual encodings are designed. Seamless transitions depict the perceivable correspondence between these representations. Finally, a provenance-inspired abstraction map guides the scientists to relevant visualizations.



Rapid Prototyping with Inviwo for Medical Applications

Tutorial on Medical Visualization

Date: Thu, 5 September 2019 at 15.45-17.15





Inviwo is a rapid prototyping framework for visualizing spatial and abstract data. In this tutorial, we show how Inviwo can be utilized for easily creating visualizations in the medical domain. We provide an overview of the concepts used in Inviwo like its visual network editor and the associated data flow paradigm. Several hands-on examples illustrate how to import data and build your own visualization networks. In the second part, we cover how to extend the existing functionality using python scripting and C++. By the end of the tutorial, you will be familiar with Inviwo’s capabilities and use it effectively.

Inviwo is available at https://inviwo.org and Github (https://github.com/inviwo/inviwo).
