Doing Research? Explore University’s Research Computing Resources Nov. 18
Information Technology Services, in collaboration with the Research Computing Advisory Council, will host the second in a series of Computing Colloquies designed to help campus researchers identify and make the most of the diverse array of campus computing resources available at Syracuse University. The colloquy will convene on Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 3-4 p.m. in the Katzer Collaboratory, 347 Hinds Hall. All faculty, students and staff conducting, planning or supporting research activities at the University are invited to the session.
Participants will hear first hand from M. Lisa Manning, associate professor of physics in the College of Arts and Sciences, about how she has taken advantage of SU’s computational resources. 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.
Also, participants will have opportunities to:
• connect with other researchers on campus;
• participate in an ongoing campus dialogue centered on research computing;
• receive information on available resources and navigating the landscape; and
• meet and engage SU’s research computing staff.
Participants will discuss how computing resources help researchers take on new and greater computational tasks, enhance research productivity, increase the competitiveness of grant submissions and advance scientific discovery across many disciplines.
To register, send an email to email@example.com. Please include your name, daytime phone number and any accommodations you may require.
