Events @ IACS: Community and Computation

IACS strives to build and maintain an interdisciplinary community of individuals using computation to solve problems and advance knowledge. IACS seminars are generally held every other Friday at lunchtime during the academic year. Subscribe to the calendar below or mailing list for notices. Please visit our video archive page for available video and audio recordings.


Every January IACS organizes ComputeFest, an annual program of knowledge- and skill-building activities in computational science and engineering. ComputeFest activities include workshops on computational tools such as matlab, python and R; a student computational challenge, during which student teams test their computational skills in a fun filled competition; and a series of symposia on computational topics leading up to the Future of Computation in Science and Engineering Symposium which brings together experts from industry and academia to discuss a topic at the forefront of applied computation.

Boston-area events

IACS is part of an active community of academic, industrial and entrepreneurial groups in the Boston area applying computation to solve cutting edge problems across a wide range of disciplines. There are many events that may be of interest to the IACS community.
