Discuss students' research in Zoom breakout rooms (organized by topic)

Starting Wednesday, July 29, you can visit the virtual showcase of poster presentations from student interns, assistants, and affiliates who have been mentored this summer by staff from the Computational Research Division, ESnet, and NERSC. In the virtual showcase, you will find a poster and a recorded presentation from each student describing their research with Berkeley Lab over the last weeks.

At 10 a.m. on August 4, live discussions with the students will kick off with an introduction by Associate Lab Director for Computing Sciences Jonathan Carter. After Carter's address, Berkeley Lab staff are invited to drop-in discussions with the summer researchers who will be assigned to over a dozen different Zoom breakout rooms organized roughly around science areas and topics.

The culminating event of the summer research program, the poster session is a great opportunity for less experienced students to present in a supportive atmosphere while exposing the rest of the lab to the wide range of projects our 100-plus summer researcher program produces.

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.
