The SFB 1313 "Pretty Porous Science Lectures" #7 will be given by Steffen Frey from the University of Groningen (Netherlands)

We are pleased to announce that Steffen Frey, Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen (Netherlands) and SFB 1313 principal investigator of research project D01, will give the SFB 1313 "Pretty Porous Science Lecture" #7. His talk will be on "Visualization of Multifield Data: Layouts, Features, and Systems".

Date: Thursday, 10 June 2021
Time: 4:00 pm CET
Speaker: Ass. Prof. Dr. Steffen Frey, University of Groningen, Netherlands
Lecture title: "Visualization of Multifield Data: Layouts, Features, and Systems"
Place: If you are interested in participating in the lecture, please contact


State-of-the art simulations and experiments in porous media research capture processes and phenomena in multiple high-resolution fields, each of which (partially) describes the state of an investigated system at a certain point in time. The richness of the obtained data provides an unprecedented opportunity to gain new insights, but also introduces various challenges for the analysis. This talk will focus on three complementary visualization approaches for making sense of multifield data: layouts  (the arrangement and aggregation of fields), features (the data representation used for analysis), and finally systems (the interactive visual exploration incorporating different components). All perspectives are presented via examples from prior work within SFB 1313 and beyond.

About the speaker

Steffen Frey received his PhD degree in computer science from the University of Stuttgart in 2014 and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart (VISUS). Since 2020, he is an assistant professor at the Bernoulli Institute at the University of Groningen, Netherlands. His research interests are in visualization methods for increasingly large quantities of scientific data.
