CISC Announces Spring 2018 Matchmaking Seminar Lineup

The Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific Computation (CISC) at Illinois Tech is announcing a series of faculty matchmaking seminars for spring 2018. The purpose of these informal seminars is to familiarize attendees with a faculty member’s research in scientific computation with an eye on facilitating interdisciplinary collaboration. They are not meant to be in-depth research talks. Rather, speakers are encouraged to highlight relevant research areas and suggest possible ways in which they could potentially interact with other disciplines. They will prepare for a 20-minute presentation, and questions will be allowed at any time.

Seminars will be held during the lunch hour, with two speakers per session, and are open to all Illinois Tech affiliates. Lunch (omnivorous or vegetarian) will be provided to those who RSVP. Seminars are planned on the following dates:

Tuesday, March 6 at 12:45 p.m. in Stuart Building, Room 104 – “Efficient Monte Carlo Simulations” by Fred Hickernell (applied math) and “Promoting Productivity of High Performance Computing” by Zhiling Lan (computer science). RSVP.

Monday, March 26 at 12:45 p.m. in the Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 121 – Andrey Rogachev (chemistry) and Ron Landis (psychology). RSVP.

Wednesday, April 4 at 12:45 p.m. in the Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 121 – Sonja Petrovic (applied math) and Tom Irving (biology). RSVP.

Tuesday, April 24 at 12:45 p.m. in the Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 121 – Sohail Murad (chemical and biological engineering) and Abhinav Bhushan (biomedical engineering). RSVP.

Titles and abstracts for the last three sessions will be made available closer to the seminar dates.
