Computing Sciences Summer Students: 2017 Welcome

Osni MarquesWelcome to the 2017 Computing Sciences Summer Student Program!

Dear Prospective Students,

Welcome to the 2017 Computing Sciences Summer Student Program. I am Osni Marques, from the Computational Research Division (CRD), and the Summer Student Program Chair for 2017. We will update this page as the program's agenda evolves.The program will start on June 6, 2017. To give you an overview of the program, please check last year's presentations and poster session. If you would like to apply to the program, check this posting. (The posting will remain active until June 1, 2017. However, we expect that most selections will be made by April, which means that you should apply at your earliest convenience.)

Please feel free to contact the following people if you have any questions about the Computing Sciences Summer Student Program or the Berkeley Lab:

Schedule of Events

Berkeley Lab's Computing Sciences organization innovates, develops, and deploys new tools and technologies to support research in areas of global climate change, combustion, fusion energy, nanotechnology, biology, and astrophysics. The talks on Thursdays aim at giving you an idea of the extensive range of that research. For updates and reminders, please contact Teresa Montero to be added to the list of Google calendar invitees for this series of events. The following table corresponds to our tentative schedule. (In addition to the weekly events listed below, other seminars by CS staff will be also occasionally offered to you.)

Housing

Unfortunately, the Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences Summer Student Program cannot provide housing for participating students that are flying in for the summer. However, here are some resources for those looking for a summer sublet or rental in Berkeley. Although we try to assure that the information we present here is correct, please do verify any terms and conditions before moving in.

  • Berkeley Lab Classified Ads - This resource has a "Rentals and Roommates" section that lists housing opportunities by Lab employees.
  • Dormitories are usually large community style housing with shared bathrooms and rooms off a main hallway. Some dorms offer meals in the summer, while others don't. Some dorms are expensive and gorgeous, while others are inexpensive and run down. There is the occasional exception, but on average you get what you pay for.
