Marie Curie RTN SOLAIRE postgraduate school on Visualization of numerical data, Copenhagen, Denmark, November 3-7 2008. I introduce the open-source Paraview visualization package. I do this from a user perspective, so please consult the project website for updates/wiki/FAQ/Documentation. My own motivation is to use it for visualization of large data sets produced by our grid-adaptive AMRVAC code.
