The Institute for Computing in Science hosted eight workshops this summer in Park City, Utah. Each week-long workshop was organized by leaders in computational science, mathematics, and computer science. The goal of ICIS is to build ties between these fields through an annual series of intensive workshops aimed at examining deep questions that lie at the intersection of computation and science. More information can be found on the ICIS website.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering held a Tech Tune Up course series on several days between May 23 and June 9. This was an opportunity to learn about the latest innovations, to advance your skills, and to network with campus professors. More information can be found on the ECE website.
