  • The “Natas” of Visualization 2016 are in!

    Following our tradition (see News for the “2014 Natas” and News for the “2015 Natas”), the prizes for the winners of the image and video of 2016, the “natas” of visualization, were awarded to Fabio Cruz (left, and double winner after the 2014 award) and to Giannandrea Inchingolo (right), with the corresponding iPad Mini. As one of the previous winners Paulo Alves nicely described ““Nata” is a tasty Portuguese pastry that everybody likes. It’s as enjoyable as having our simulations running nicely on a big supercomputer. It can also mean being at the top, at a high level, important.” Many congratulations to the 2016 winners!
