Welcome to the 2023 Computing Sciences Summer Program!

Osni Marques

Osni Marques, Summer Program Chair

Dear Program Participants,

Welcome to Berkeley Lab’s 2023 Computing Sciences Summer Program. I am Osni Marques, from the Applied Mathematics and Computational Research Division (AMCR) and the Summer Program Chair for 2023. As a member of this select group of faculty and students, your participation in the Berkeley Lab Summer Program will contribute important and valuable insights to your future professional development. You will have the opportunity to learn even more by attending​ a ​wide ​​​range of special events, presentations, and tours we have created just for participants in the program. Please check the table below for a schedule of these events.

The program will start on June 6, 2023, with a welcome address by Deb Agarwal (SciData Division Director) and Stefan Wild (AMCR Division Director).

I look forward to meeting you all, and I hope you will find your summer at the Berkeley Lab very stimulating.

Please feel free to contact the following people if you have any questions about the Computing Sciences Summer 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 global climate change, combustion, fusion energy, nanotechnology, biology, and astrophysics. The scheduled presentations aim at giving you an idea of the extensive range of that research. For updates and reminders, please email CS-Summer-Program-Staff@lbl.gov to be added to the list of Google calendar invitees for this series of events.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

High performance computing plays a critical role in scientific discovery. Researchers increasingly rely on advances in computer science, mathematics, computational science, data science, and large-scale computing and networking to increase our understanding of ourselves, our planet, and our universe. Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area researches, develops, and deploys new foundations, tools, and technologies to meet these needs and to advance research across a broad range of scientific disciplines.
