The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a measurement science laboratory whose mission has a primary economic focus. The High Performance Computing and Visualization Group at NIST has been using immersive visualization along with parallel computing in its collaborations with other NIST scientists over close to two decades. During this time the Group has developed an approach that emphasizes merging quantitative immersive visualization with interactive analysis in our 'Virtual Measurement and Analysis Laboratory' to enhance understanding of projects. This talk highlights the insights that enable us to further NIST's mission using virtual reality as one of our tools.



Dr. Judith Devaney Terrill is the Leader of the High Performance Computing and Visualization Group in the Information Technology Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Her background is in physics, parallel computing, visualization, and machine learning.
