Philadelphia, PA
Friday, April 15, 2016
1:30 pm to 5:30 pm, in SERC 116

Temple University’s  high performance computing (HPC) capabilities are growing.    Come join us for a symposium showcasing  the diversity of research made possible by our Owlsnest HPC cluster and the many other computational resources here at Temple.


1:30 Introduction (Vincent Voelz, Chemistry)
1:40 Axel Kohlmeyer (CST)   Owlsnest. Past, present, and future
1:50 Eleonora Gianti (Klein lab, Chemistry)   Computational structural chemistry
2:10 Peter Chi (Liberles lab, Biology)   Computational molecular evolution
2:30 Djordje Gligorijevic (Obradovic lab, CIS)   Predictive modeling of dynamic networks
2:50 Posters and coffee
3:30 Craig Stanley (Kulathinal lab, Biology)   Evolutionary computational genomics
3:50 Haowei Peng (Perdew lab, Physics)   Density functional theory
4:10 Gillian Queisser (Mathematics)   Computational neuroscience
4:30 Posters and reception


We invite researchers at from all scientific disciplines and at all levels to bring a poster to share at the poster session and social hour, especially those involving computation, broadly defined. Since the key purpose of the poster session is to foster conversations among researchers using high-performance computing at Temple, presenters are most welcome to re-use posters from previous conferences.  Click here to submit your poster information.  Registration is free, and will get you listed in our program book. If you have any questions, please email the co-organizers, Drs. Benjamin Seibold, Rob Kulathinal, or Vincent Voelz.

This symposium has been generously sponsored by the Dean’s Office at the College of Science and Technology (CST) and the following Institutes/Centers:

Institute for Computational Molecular Science (ICMS)
Institute for Genomic and Evolutionary Medicine (iGEM)
Center for Computational Genetics and Genomics (CCGG)
