Computational Math in Industry and Beyond

Computational Math in Industry and Beyond seminar series will explore how ICME coursework and research is applied in various organizations around the world. It will feature speakers from ICME affiliate companies and ICME alumni giving technical talks on their use of computational math in their current roles.


The HIVE: Stanford’s Immersive Visualization Environment

The HANA Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE) features a 10-foot-tall by 24-feet-wide display with 13440x5400 resolution and 72 million total active pixels.  Researchers may use multiple displays simultaneously to investigate various aspects of data collection, simulation, and visualization and to zoom in to see detail at previously unheard-of-levels.
