CSURE 2014—First Posters

CSURE 2014 Students Present Project Work Through Posters

The 10-week Computational Science for Undergraduate Research Experiences (CSURE) summer program for 2014 at the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences concluded week seven on Friday, July 18, with the students giving their first poster presentations on their projects in Ayers Hall on the campus of the University of Tennessee (UT), Knoxville.

CSURE is a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates, or REU, conducted by the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS), located at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The program is composed of 10 college students from across the U.S., who are joined in their activities by four summer interns from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

About JICS and NICS: The Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) was established by the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to advance scientific discovery and state-of-the-art engineering, and to further knowledge of computational modeling and simulation. JICS realizes its vision by taking full advantage of petascale-and-beyond computers housed at ORNL and by educating a new generation of scientists and engineers well versed in the application of computational modeling and simulation for solving the most challenging scientific and engineering problems. JICS runs the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS), which had the distinction of deploying and managing the Kraken supercomputer. NICS is a leading academic supercomputing center and a major partner in the National Science Foundation's eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, known as XSEDE. In November 2012, JICS sited the Beacon system, which set a record for power efficiency and captured the number one position on the Green500 list of the most energy-efficient computers.
