Students from the SGCI Coding Institute attended the PEARC17 conference in New Orleans, LA. Several students presented their research during the poster session and also served as student volunteers.
PEARC17 is for everyone who cares about the challenges in using and operating advanced research computing. Organizations supporting this new conference include the Advancing Research Computing on Campuses: Best Practices Workshop (ARCC), XSEDE, the Science Gateways Community Institute, the Campus Research Computing (CaRC) Consortium, the ACI-REF consortium, the Blue Waters project, ESnet, Open Science Grid, Compute Canada, the EGI Foundation, the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC), and Internet2.
While there, students completed hands-on projects and gave presentations as listed here:
- Mathematical Modeling for Malaria Transmission Dynamics I
- Mathematical Modeling for Malaria Transmission Dynamics II
- Prediction Model for Human and Mosquito Populations in Malaria Afflicted Regions
- Modeling the Zombie Apocalypse
- Using RK4 to Model Felix Baumgartner's 38969 m Skydive
