ICME Xpo gives 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 18 departments throughout Stanford. This is a unique opportunity to see how computational mathematics, data science, scientific computing, and related fields are applied across a wide range of domain areas.

ICME Xpo features an afternoon poster session followed by a series of faculty vision talks and promises plenty of opportunities to connect with ICME faculty and students, alumni, and partners from industry and laboratories.  ICME Xpo will take place in the Huang Engineering Center, Mackenzie Room (Room 300) followed by ICME Xtravaganza--the ICME end-of-year celebration held in the ICME suite in Huang Engineering Center, Suite B060.

May 20, 2016, Agenda:

1:00-2:40 p.m.: Poster Session. 40+ posters on research in computational mathematics and data science applied to a wide range of fields.

2:00- 2:40 p.m.: HANA Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE) Demos. Visit the HIVE (Huang B050) to see demonstrations of research in action.

2:45-5:00 p.m.: Faculty Vision Talks. Topics will include: Autonomous Vehicles, Scalable Machine Learning, Modeling Extreme Events in Natural World, Experiments with Network Effects, Estimating Asset Pricing Factors, Recent Progress and Exploration of Linear Programming Algorithms, along with additional topics to be announced soon.

5:00-6:30 p.m.: Reception.

6:30- 8:30 p.m.: ICME Xtravaganza.  The ICME end-of-year celebration will begin immediately after Xpo, complete with music, food, end-of-year accolades, and conversations with students, faculty, and colleagues. ICME Xtravaganza will be held in the ICME suite in Huang Engineering Center, Suite B060.
