Collaboration is an effective approach to problem solving in most large-scale scientific investigations, which are highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, with project investigators often geographically distributed. These associations can be large and very complex, and thus hard to comprehend. Visualization can play a key role in both knowledge discovery and managing potentially complex and high-dimensional collaborative workspace. Many researchers do not have access to the resources required to perform effective visualization for large data sets generated by their simulations. The International Linear Collider (ILC) project involves researchers from Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) in Japan, Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY) in Germany, and various the US national laboratories. Scientists on this project may run the same simulation code with a different parameter setting.
