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 Research Symposium will be held virtually on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

ICME Summer Workshops

Every August, ICME offers a variety of summer workshops to students, external partners, and the wider community. These workshops cover a wide range of topics, ranging from machine learning to natural language processing to programming Python. Registration is required and allocated on a first come first serve basis. Discounts available for faculty, students and ICME corporate affiliates.

The next ICME Summer Workshops will be held in August 2021.

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.

The next Xtend Career Forum will be held on November 4, 2021.
