Michigan State University’s newly formed Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering (CMSE) will host an inaugural workshop Sept. 16 -17, to kick off intellectual discourse on scientific computing and data science across the MSU community.

The two-day workshop, which will be held at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center on the MSU campus, will bring together speakers from across the country who are leaders in these disciplines.

To register, visit www.egr.msu.edu/fcds2015/registration. There is no charge for the workshop, but pre-registration is required.

For those needing lodging accommodations, contact the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center (ask for the “CMSE room block.” The discounted rate for this block expires on Aug. 16.) Information on additional lodging options and other general travel information may be found at http://users.math.msu.edu/users/markiwen/VisitingMSU.html.

Registered participants are invited to participate in a banquet the evening of Sept. 16 in honor of the newly formed Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering.

The creation of the MSU Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering was approved by the MSU Board of Trustees in April. The department, which is jointly administered by the College of Natural Science and the College of Engineering, is intended to position MSU as a world leader in scientific discovery through large-scale computation.
