The Graduate Simulation Seminar Series (GS^3) is back for summer 2020! They are offering a 10-week seminar program, featuring talks from a diverse set of graduate students and/or postdocs who use simulation in their research, representing a wide swath of academic disciplines across UCSB.

The seminars will be held Mondays from 10-11AM this summer over Zoom, starting Monday, July 6, and going through September 14th. During this period, a few keynote speakers will be invited to give a talk and/or to hold a panel discussion on cutting-edge simulation/computation-based research and career opportunities (speakers TBD). They are also open to suggestions for ​additional speakers you would like to see, either for panels or research talks. You can submit suggestions here.

GS^3 is also looking for graduate or postdoc seminar presenters! If you would like to give a talk or lead a workshop on a computation/simulation topic, please sign up as soon as possible using this form. You can choose to give a 30 minute or 1 hour talk. This is a wonderful opportunity to practice presenting your research to a friendly audience. Also, the best presentations will be awarded prizes!

You can also sign up for a mailing list and to express interest in joining the GS^3 advisory board by emailing Muna Saber. This mailing list will be used to share abstracts for upcoming seminar talks, provide updates for the keynote speaker event, and to notify you about simulation/HPC happenings throughout campus.

Although seminar presentations are only open to graduate students and postdocs, undergraduates, faculty/staff, and experimental researchers are welcome to sign up for ​the mailing list and attend talks. There may be chances to give ex silico talks with more of an experimental focus at times over the summer.
