August 17, 2022

The Computing Sciences Area Summer Program wrapped up another successful year on Tuesday, August 2, with both virtual and physical poster sessions.

Some 113 participated in this year’s program (70 in-person, 43 virtually). About 60 presented posters detailing the research they conducted in conjunction with their Berkeley Lab mentors. As in the past two years, participants video-recorded poster presentations. In addition, both presented to live audiences and took questions: Remote participants on Zoom and in-person participants on the third floor of Wang Hall. A selection of photos of the in-person poster session are available online.

“As always, I am very grateful to my colleagues who make this program extraordinarily successful by mentoring researchers and giving workshops and seminars,” said Osni Marques, a staff scientist in the Applied Mathematics and Computational Research Division who has chaired the program for the last decade.

“It was great to see the students back at the lab,” said Marques, who also wished to acknowledge the team that supported both streams of the hybrid program. “The CS Area has put together a great team to ensure the continuing success of the summer program,” Marques said. The team included Lisa Bruzdzinski (program coordination); Lucy Radcliffe (seminar coordination and general support); Andrew Ratcliffe (operations and communications); Jason Salinas (weekly program support); Kerri Peyovich (poster session coordination); Seleste Rodriguez, Michelle Scoggins, and Madelyn Blair (poster program support); and Dionne Myers (Sustainable Research Program coordination).

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.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
