ICME Presents BASCD 12/12/12
Bay Area Scientific Computing Day
BASCD is an annual informal gathering to encourage the interaction and collaboration of researchers in the fields of scientific computing and computational science/engineering from the San Francisco Bay Area. This event provides a great venue for junior researchers to present their work to the local community, and for the Bay Area scientific and computational science/engineering communities at large to interchange views on today’s multidisciplinary computational challenges and state-of-the-art developments.
The event will feature presentations by researchers from institutions in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This year BASCD will be held in the Kavli auditorium located at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Laboratory.
Come early to get a seat, event starts at 9:00am and ends at 4:30pm. Lunch is at 12:15pm. Offical schedule HERE!
