Vis 2009 Tutorial

After discussion, it seems that the tutorial is best broken into two distinct pieces: A user-centric portion focused on using VisTrails, and a power-user or developer-centric portion focusing on plug-ins, mashups, etc.

Working Outline

  • Introduction to Provenance and VisTrails (1h 30m) - Presenter: Claudio/Erik/Juliana/Manu (?)
    • Brief view of plugins and released features of VisTrails
  • Basic hands-on usage of VisTrails (1h 30m) - Presenter: Manu (?)
    • Building Simple Pipelines
    • Using PythonSource
    • Connecting to databases
    • VisTrails as a Server
  • Advanced hands-on usage of VisTrails (1h 30m) - Presenter: Erik
    • This will all be in the context of a very specific example - My first thought was to use Gil's data, as it has many very nice features that build a nice story, but problems with releasing data are pushing me towards a CMOP example.
    • Organizational principles of the History Tree - QBE, Analogies, Parameter Exploration -> New Version
    • vtkInteractionHandlers - Slicing and dicing data
    • PythonSource as callback definition - Picking specific elements
    • The workflow debugger

    • Plug-in architecture overview
    • Different implementation strategies
    • ParaView Plug-in demo
