More than 25 faculty and student researchers joined the staff of the Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC) on May 10, 2013 to present their recent work at the CIRC’s 3rd Annual Poster Session.

Representing 13 departments and centers from the Medical Center and Arts, Sciences and Engineering, presenters showcased the research they have conducted using the University’s supercomputing resources.  Technology like the Blue Gene/Q supercomputer enables researchers to simulate experiments with different parameters quickly and efficiently.

This annual event — in addition to the monthly symposia that the CIRC hosts — gives researchers the opportunity to share computational techniques and methodologies with each other and explore potential collaborations.

Attendees voted for Best Poster, awarding graduate students Yanju Liu (Mechanical Engineering) and Raj Parihar (Electrical and Computer Engineering) first and second place, respectively.
