Northwestern Computational Research Day - April 19, 2016

Main Content

The annual Northwestern Computational Research Day is being held on April 19, 2016. This event is hosted by Northwestern Information Technology (IT) and sponsored in conjunction with Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, Kellogg School of Management, Feinberg School of Medicine, Office for Research, and Northwestern University Libraries. Corporate sponsors include, Lenovo and NVIDIA.

This all-day, campus-wide event is designed to showcase computational research at Northwestern, as well as strengthen the computational research community at Northwestern. Highlights of the day will include presentations from Northwestern researchers, guest speakers, the Visualization Challenge sponsored by NVIDIA and a poster session sponsored by CIERA (Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics) and NICO (Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems).

During lunch time, Northwestern IT and Northwestern University Library will available for to answer questions you may have about your computational research. Stop by one of the consultation booths located in the Louis Room to chat with a specialist!

Please see the proposed agenda for further details of the day's events.

  • Express and learn challenges being faced by the Northwestern computational community.
  • Understand support, services, and infrastructure available to University researchers.
  • Network with other computational researchers across both Evanston and Chicago campuses.

Register to Attend

Please register in advance. Registration is required for entrance to attendee lunch and Researchers' Reception. On-site registration and badge pick up/check-in will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Researchers' Reception

At the conclusion of the conference, conference attendees are invited to enjoy light refreshments from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Louis Lobby in Norris. Plan to join us and engage with colleagues and continue conversations on research and collaborations.

Poster Session and Competition

Postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students are eligible to present at the poster session, sponsored by CIERA (Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics) and NICO (Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems). Poster Session requirements and submission deadlines.

Visualization Challenge

Visualizations come in a variety of forms, but the end goal of all of them is the same: To translate scientific data or ideas from a form that is numerical or abstract into a form that is visual and more readily understood.

Postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students at Northwestern are invited to submit their visualizations and/or proposals for visualizations. Expertise in visualization is not required to participate. See the Visualization Challenge requirements and submission deadlines for details.
