The 16th Geilo Winter School will take place January 17-22 2015 at Dr. Holms Hotel, Geilo. As you may already know, this year's topic is Scientific Visualization.

As you can see from the preliminary program (http://goo.gl/LTfwMF), this year's winter school will cover multiple aspects of scientific visualization, a topic we hope many of you find interesting. Visualization is an integral part of science, and a necessity for our understanding of complex processes and data. The word itself can have a broad interpretation, including creating trivial plots of values, advanced rendering techniques, and complex statistical data reasoning. This winter school will target the process of understanding data through scientific visualization, and focus on extracting knowledge from data. With hands-on exercises, you will learn techniques, tools, and best practices for extracting knowledge from data. We are still awaiting confirmation from a couple of interesting speakers, so expect that the program will expand in the coming time. As in previous years, there will also be a poster session on Wednesday, where participants are encouraged to present their own research.

You can find more information about the winter school on the brand new webpages, http://www.sintef.no/GeiloWinterSchool/, and you can follow the school on Facebook as well, https://www.facebook.com/geilowinterschool/.
