CSCS organized a one-day workshop on "Advanced Visualization Techniques" using VTK and ParaView. VTK is a software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing and visualization with world-class usage. In the workshop it has been demonstrated many of the recent additions to the toolkit, covering interactive ray-tracing and photo-realistic renderings, volume rendering, parallel processing, visualization in a Web browser, Qt5-based mini-apps. In concert with the upcoming release of ParaView 5.5, the participants put in practice many of the new features in this release with special tuning for the Piz Daint hardware. All demonstrations were driven by Python scripts to encourage re-use for the participants' own simulations results.
