Illinois Tech Research Seminar Series: Argonne CELS

We are pleased to announce a new joint seminar series between the CELS (Computing, Environment and Life Sciences) directorate of Argonne National Laboratory and Illinois Tech. The goal is to promote research collaborations between two organizations in computing fields including high performance computing, AI/ML, edge computing, data sciences, and more.

The Spring ’22 series will start with a kickoff seminar, followed by four themed seminars. Follow-up series will be arranged in the near future. All Spring ’22 seminars will be held on Wednesdays 4–5 p.m. on a weekly basis between March 2 and April 6. Each seminar will include four speakers (two from Argonne and two from Illinois Tech). Each speaker is expected to give a 10-15 minute lightning talk of his/her research. All seminars will be held online via Zoom.
