Dear Program Participants,

Welcome to LBNL's 2021 Computing Sciences Summer Program. I am Osni Marques, from the Computational Research Division (CRD), and the Summer Program Chair for 2021. 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 that we have created just for participants in the program. Please check the table below for a schedule of these events. Due to the coronavirus situation, this year all events will be offered remotely (via zoom).

The program will start on June 1, 2021, with a welcome from David Brown, Director of the Computational Research Division.

I am looking forward to meeting you all (via zoom), and I hope you will find your summer at the Berkeley Lab very stimulating.

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 scheduled presentations aim at giving you an idea of the extensive range of that research.
