Computational Science Symposium

Computational Science Symposium

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 10, 2010

Fairbanks, Alaska—A series of 11 topical sessions focusing on the current state of computational research activities at the University of Alaska Fairbanks will take place Feb. 15 - 26. More than 50 principal investigators representing a wide range of scientific disciplines will have the opportunity to meet their colleagues at UAF who are using supercomputers as an essential tool in conducting their research.

The forum, sponsored by the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center, will also provide an opportunity for PIs to review and discuss the potential for future cross-disciplinary computational science research in the fields of climate, tsunami, physics and chemistry.

ARSC supports more than 280 scientists at UAF by helping them find, write or improve the software they need to do their research and to conduct computationally intensive investigations in areas of high-priority to the state, including climate modeling, atmospheric science and ocean science.

All symposium sessions will be held in the West Ridge Research Building (WRRB) Conference Room 010. All sessions are listed by time and date, topic area, PI and presentation title in the UA Computational Science Symposium agenda.
