*** Call For Participation! ***
The New Jersey Center for Science, Technology, and Mathematics,
the XSEDE Education Program
invite you to a Workshop on Computational Science Curriculum and Industry Needs in New Jersey
We are hosting a one day workshop focusing on curriculum and market needs for computational science in New Jersey. This workshop will be held at the New Jersey Center for Science, Technology, and Mathematics on the campus of Kean University, on May 5th, 2015, and will include examples of curriculum programs in computational science in other states led by Steve Gordon of the Ohio Supercomputer Center, Director of the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science and Education Lead for the XSEDE project. Additionally there will be an industry panel focusing on the needs of the science, engineering, and high tech communities for graduates trained in computing.
Please join us at this event bringing together faculty both on campus and across the state with members of industry.
We hope that you can either attend, or help us to identify personnel from your organization to attend, and we invite you or your representative to be a part of this discussion.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to colleagues who you feel would benefit from being part of this discussion.
Space is limited, so please RSVP to David Joiner (firstname.lastname@example.org, 908-737-7211) by April 23rd, 2015, and indicate the number, names, emails, and titles of people in your party.
From David Joiner, Mon Apr 13 17:00 2015.
We are still finalizing the agenda, but tentatively plan for the workshop to run from 9-3, with the morning portion of the workshop focused on a talk from Steve Gordon on what the Ralph Regula school has done in Ohio in both defining standards for computational science and in getting collaborations between schools in the Ohio system, followed by the industry panel. The afternoon portion will be set aside for breakout groups to discuss specific curriculum goals.
Our goal is to target faculty at NJ public universities and community colleges to discuss statewide industry needs in computation, what ways curriculum is being or can be developed that aligns nationally with what other programs are doing, and whether there are areas where it makes sense for institutions to work together.
As of right now the registration is a very fancy system, i.e. you email me, and there isn't a website yet.
