University Research Community Invited to Computing Colloquies
The diverse array of campus computing resources available to the University’s researchers was created to take on new and greater computational tasks, enhance research productivity, increase the competitiveness of grant submissions and advance scientific discovery across many disciplines.
Information Technology Services (ITS), in collaboration with the Research Computing Advisory Council (RCAC), will host a series of Computing Colloquies designed to help campus researchers identify and make the most of these resources. These sessions will provide attendees opportunities to:
- Connect with other researchers on campus
- Establish and participate in an ongoing campus dialogue centered on research computing
- Hear first-hand from other Syracuse University researchers who utilize computing as significant components of their research, and how they have taken advantage of the University’s computational resources
- Receive information on available resources and navigating the landscape
- Meet and engage the University’s research computing staff
The first Computing Colloquy will occur Wednesday, Oct. 7, from noon to 1 p.m. and feature remarks by Melissa Green, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering in the College of Engineering and Computer Science. She will share how her research group successfully takes advantage of campus computational resources and overcomes challenges, barriers and obstacles. This session will be held in the Katzer Collaboratory, 347 Hinds Hall. Lunch will be provided for all who pre-register.
The second Computing Colloquy will feature M. Lisa Manning, associate professor of physics in the College of Arts and Sciences on Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Katzer Collaboratory. A computational researcher in soft matter physics, Manning runs custom high-throughput and high-performance computer code on a local cluster at the University’s Green Data Center and on OrangeGrid. She works with wide-ranging applications from designing new structural materials, such as bulk metallic glasses, to understanding biological processes, such as embryonic development and cancer metastasis.
All faculty, students and staff conducting, planning or supporting research activities at Syracuse University are invited to both sessions.
To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org noting the session(s) you plan to attend. Please include your name, daytime phone number and any accommodations you may require.
