  abstract= "Computational steering is the ability to visualise the data
     from a computation in progress and to modify the future
     behaviour of the computation in response to this. It is
     often perceived as being something very difficult to
     implement, especially for parallel computations. However,
     given a good visualisation environment, we have found that
     this is not necessarily the case. We have sought to dispel
     this myth, using a very simple model which makes it easy to
     'wire-up' an existing MPI parallel program for steering. New
     insights may quickly be gained by continually monitoring and
     guiding the progress of computational simulations, that were
     perhaps previously analysed only in their final state."
