Annual Events in ICME

In ICME, whether its winter, spring, summer, or autumn, there's bound to be

something interesting happening.


See below for a list of our annual major events. To view all upcoming events, click here.

Xtend Career Forum

ICME's annual recruitment event, Xtend, takes place each November at Stanford. Like no other career-themed event offered on campus, Xtend is designed to introduce partners from industry and national labs to qualified ICME PhD and MS candidates through Career Information Sessions, a networking breakfast and reception, and a full day of interviews.

ICME Partners are given the ICME Resume Book, a searchable PDF document of the resumes of all of the participating students from ICME and ICME-related departments. Partners and students then provide their preferences for interviewing, which provides data for the matching algorithm from our ICME C2 Consulting team, which in turn allows us to provide each participating partner and student with a personalized schedule of appointments. If you would like to participate in Xtend but are not yet a partner, consider joining our ICME Partner Program.

We will be having a (pre-Xtend) Networking Night on October 16, 2018. Click here for more information

The Xtend (main event) will be held on November 7, 2018.

Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference

WiDS is a one-day technical conference that provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science related research in multiple domains, learn how leading-edge companies are leveraging data science for success, and connect with potential mentors, collaborators, and others in the field. You can get a feeling for the conference by watching this short highlight video

The next WiDS Conference will be held on March 4, 2019.

Xtrapolate Roundtable

A feature of the ICME Educational Affiliates Program, Xtrapolate Roundtable brings together academia and industry to converse about the latest key technologies and opportunities for collaboration.  Each year, this roundtable-format event features a new focus area; topics have included machine and deep learning, data visualization, data ethics, research, and strategic curriculum development.  Tech-talks, panel conversations, demonstrations, and networking round out this intimate event. 

This year, ICME will combine the Xtrapolate roundtable and the Xpo research symposium to provide the best from both of these events into one full-day event.
The ICME Xtrapolate Roundtable and Symposium will be held on May 17, 2019.

Xpo Research Symposium

Every May, ICME holds its Xpo 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.

The next Xpo Roundtable and Symposium will be held on May 17, 2019.

Summer Workshops

Every August, ICME offers a variety of summer workshops to students, external partners, and the wider community.

The next Summer Workshops will be the week of August 12-16, 2019.

GPUniversity of Deep Learning and Beyond

ICME and NVIDIA present GPUniversity of Deep Learning and Beyond. At this one-day event, participants explore the future of AI computing—from robotics and medicine to finance and self-driving carsand discover how GPUs are powering this revolution with hands-on demos, deep learning workshops, and tech talks with experts who are creating new realities with AI.
