Scientific Computing Day (SCD) is a symposium for fostering interactions and collaborations among researchers at Georgia State University and its affiliates. SCD provides researchers a venue to present their work, and for the GSU scientific, computational and business communities to exchange views on today’s multidisciplinary computational challenges and state-of-the-art developments.
With over a dozen of our industry and academia collaborators, this year’s SCD evolves from a single-day conference to a two-day symposium featuring a full day of tutorials on analytics.

What to expect?
Day 1 – October 25: Tutorials/labs led by experts. 
Day 2- October 26: 
 Technical program features: presentations by renowned and leading experts on topics such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and advanced cyber-infrastructure, panel discussion, student networking, and poster reception.
Researchers and aspiring researchers from all disciplines are welcome.
