Meet the CI & CRI: Lightning Talks & Student Lunch

Join Computation Institute and Center for Research Informatics researchers for lunch November 1st and hear about opportunities for student research projects at the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory. Scientists will present brief talks and posters on work applying the latest computational approaches to medicine, biology, art, climate change, economics and social good. Come learn how to get involved with interdisciplinary projects using programming, modeling, simulation, digital fabrication and supercomputing to push forward the boundaries of research.

WHEN: Friday, November 1, 11:45 AM – 2:00 PM
WHERE: Searle Chemical Laboratory, Rm. 240 (take elevator to 2nd floor, follow signs)
WHAT: Short talks and poster session, lunch, dessert and coffee served
