Tools & Strategies for Successful Research Proposals: Research Design


February 5, 2020
12 - 1 p.m.
Regenstein Library, Room A-11
The goal of this session is to help you understand the process of academic research design. You will learn about preparatory work, including thinking through the practicalities of data collection, planning how to manage and analyze the data generated and thinking about how to present the findings of the research.

GPUs: Why They Are so Important and Why Everyone Hates Them


February 12, 2020
10:30 - 11:30 a.m.
Argonne National Laboratory
Graphics processing units (GPUs) will come to dominate the mid to high range of numerical simulation within the next few years. This seminar will discuss what architectural features make them inevitable for numerical computations and how these same features and other attributes make them so disliked by most developers of numerical simulation applications and libraries.
