Most recently he served as the keynote speaker at the International Conference on Parallel Computing, ParCo 2015, in Edinburgh, September 2015.
ICES Professor Jim Chelikowsky served as an organizer for the December workshop "Real-space formalism within the PARSEC code: perspectives and future development."
Held at Tel Aviv University Dec. 13-17, the workshop invited 15 speakers from throughout the world to offer tutorials, lectures, and simulation exercises. Read more.Posted: Jan. 11, 2016
Beginning Jan. 8, ICES will host its first in a series of nine lectures by world leaders in computational medicine.
Alison Marsden, associate professor of pediatrics and of bioengineering at Stanford University, will be the inaugural speaker in the series, which seeks to highlight computational medicine's critical contributions to advancing healthcare.
"Computational Medicine is an emerging field that uses computer modeling, simulation, and data analysis to promote advances in prognosis, therapies, non-invasive diagnostic methods, and personalized medicine,” says Michael Sacks, ICES professor of biomedical engineering and an organizer of the series.
