Workshop on  THE POWER OF  SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING by the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research

The dramatic increase in the speed and data-handling capability of high performance computers, and a complementary development of novel algorithms, have transformed the nature of scientific investigation. Computation is now used regularly and intensively for the simulation of complex physical problems. Scientific computation has joined experiment and theory to become a central pillar of modern science.

Please join us to learn about the impact of computing on the process of scientific discovery at UMass Dartmouth.

The workshop will be held at the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research, TXT 105, on Tuesday September 17 from 1-6pm and on Tuesday September 24 from 1-6pm.
