Seminar Series

The fall seminar series will kick off on September 9, 2016 and explore an array of topics including predicting public transit delays, data science for social impact, machine learning, and connectomics-mapping the brain. 

IACS seminars are generally held every other Friday during the academic year, and are free and open to the public. Lunch is served at 12:30pm on a first-come, first served basis, with the seminar beginning promptly at 1pm. Unless otherwise indicated, all seminars will be held in Maxwell Dworkin G115.  


Organized by the Institute for Applied Computational Science, ComputeFest is an annual two week program of knowledge- and skill-building activities in computational science and engineering.

Symposium on the Future of Computation in Science and Engineering: Brain + Machines

What can we learn from observing structure and function in the brain? How does that knowledge help us understand brain function and disease? How might it influence AI and machine learning? And what are the long-term implications for computing?

Save the date for next year's symposium: January 19, 2017.
