Georgia Scientific Computing Symposium 2017
Saturday, February 25, 2017, Paul D. Coverdell Center for Biomedical & Health Sciences, Athens, GA 30602, University of Georgia.
[The BRG dissolved in August, 2019, due to Juan B. Gutierrez's move to the University of Texas at San Antonio.]
The Georgia Scientific Computing Symposium (GSCS) is a forum for professors, postdocs, graduate students and other researchers in Georgia to meet in an informal setting, to exchange ideas, and to highlight local scientific computing research. The symposium has been held every year since 2009 and is open to the entire research community.
The format of the day-long symposium is a set of invited presentations, poster sessions and a poster blitz, and plenty of time to network with other attendees.
Poster sessions will be held during lunch and during the afternoon break. Anyone can present a poster, but we especially encourage graduate students and postdocs to use this opportunity to advertise their work. Please provide a poster title when you register. Posters should be set up at 9:30 am, and we will also have a Poster Blitz at 11:30 am. In the Poster Blitz, each poster presenter will have 1 minute to present 1 slide to describe his/her poster. (We will contact you to get your slide beforehand.)
A GSCS tradition is to have a group dinner at 6 pm after the symposium at a local restaurant. However, this year we plan to instead have a reception following the last talk, until 8:00 pm. The reception is free to all registered participants
