PICASso "Successes" Seminar

Presentations will usually be given by local students and postdoctoral researchers, leading researchers are periodically invited to present special sessions about key "Successes of Computational Science" in their field; i.e., areas of success in the science that could not have been (or easily been) achieved without computational science. These seminars are indicated with a key icon.
PICASso Research Seminar
Graduate students, post-docs and young faculty present overviews of their research projects and/or tutorials on computational methods they are using.
