There is no charge for Lehigh faculty, staff, or students to attend Computational Engineering & Science/HPC: Enabling New Discoveries; however, all participants will need to register through the workshop Web site.

The workshop, taking place in Iacocca Hall on Lehigh's Mountaintop Campus, will bring together experts from Lehigh and other organizations – those who explore high-end computational technology and methodologies, and those who explore other areas of science and engineering and increasingly rely on high performance computing platforms for success. Together, these perspectives will lead to new opportunities for discovery and accelerate advances in areas such as information and communication science, bioengineering and health care, energy and the environment, civil infrastructure, and nanotechnology.

Invited speakers to include:

Mihai Anitescu
Computational Mathematician, Mathematics and Computer Science Division
Argonne National Laboratory

Donald W. Brenner
Kobe Steel Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
North Carolina State University

Gerhard Hummer
Chief, Theoretical Biophysics Section
National Institutes of Health

Robert J. Vanderbei
Professor and Chair, Operations Research and Financial Engineering
Princeton University
