News about DeVIDE, duh.

DeVIDE paper wins SimVis 2008 Best Paper award!

with 2 comments

In a move that probably surprised us more than anybody else, our new SimVis 2008 paper:

C. P. Botha and F. H. Post, Hybrid scheduling in the DeVIDE dataflow visualisation environment, in Proceedings of Simulation and Visualization (H. Hauser, S. Strassburger, and H. Theisel, eds.), pp. 309–322, SCS Publishing House Erlangen, February 2008.

won the Best Paper award! This paper serves as the companion / key publication to the DeVIDE open source release (so please cite it when you use DeVIDE) and introduces the new hybrid scheduling approach.

Thanks to VRVis in Vienna, this award also has a not inconsiderable financial prize associated with it. We will spend at least part of the prize helping the TUD Vis group celebrate. 🙂

In related news, I am readying the 8.2 binaries as we speak. More on that later…

(The DeVIDE website is currently [20080302 15:04] down because the TU Delft server hosting it has somehow disappeared from the interwebs.)

  2. Hi Charl!

    Congrats on winning the award! I enjoyed the paper very much, and am very curious about your PP ( parallel python ) plans. I’ve worked with it a bit, distributing renderings across the network and think it works very well. Very curious to see how this will develop…
