External Partners

ICME's annual research symposium, Xpo, was held virtually on Thursday, May 28, 2020. This event was held for Stanford faculty, staff, students, and external partners of ICME.

Xpo Logo

Every May, ICME holds a Research Symposium, providing an up-close and inside look at current research and future plans for ICME faculty and students. ICME is engaged with over 50 faculty from 20-plus departments throughout Stanford. This is a unique opportunity to see how computational mathematics, data science, machine learning, scientific computing, and related fields are applied across a wide range of domain areas.
