The Graduate Simulation Seminar Series (GS^3) is back for Summer 2023!

GS^3 offers an in-person 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 team is also planning for an invited speaker for either research talks or a panel discussion - if you have suggestions, please let them know by filling out this form.

Seminars will be held on Wednesdays from 2-3p this summer, beginning July 12 and going through September 13. The team is happy to work to accommodate any interested speakers who can’t make this time. During this period, some 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). Please see the flyer below for more details.

GS^3 is now 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. The best speakers (determined by audience evaluations) will also receive a prize, sponsored by the Center for Scientific Computing at UCSB.

You can also use the form to sign up for the GS^3 mailing list, suggest invited speakers, and to express interest in joining our GS^3 advisory board. This mailing list will be used to share abstracts for upcoming seminar talks and to notify you about simulation/HPC happenings throughout campus.

Although seminar presentations are only open to graduate students and postdocs, undergraduates and faculty/staff 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, so please let the team know if you would be interested in giving one of those as well.
