ICME Xpo Research Symposium
This event is open to:
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.
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.
