Computation Institute Speaker Series: Inside the Discovery Cloud

This story comes from our friends at the Computation Institute, find out more at:

 Last year, the CI launched their Inside The Discovery Cloud speaker series to highlight exciting Computation Institute projects across all five of their research areas. This year, they are kicking off the series with a topic central to the CI mission: collaboration. Bringing together scientists from within and outside the CI who have worked together on projects in biology, climate change, molecular engineering, urban sensing, computer science, and more, the series will illustrate the brodening impact of computational methods and the power of partnerships between computational and domain scientists.

Future talks will take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month in Searle 240, with lunch provided to all attendees. For the full schedule, see below. You can also view videos from the 2013-14 Inside The Discovery Cloud talks on the CI YouTube channel.
