2020 InCREASE User Facilities Awareness Workshop

InCREASE workshop

Argonne will host a virtual User Facilities Awareness workshop for science and technology research faculty from minority-serving institutions. The workshop will provide short introductory lectures in the scientific areas of synchrotron science, supercomputing and nanoscience, along with discussions on research techniques and operations.

This workshop, run in collaboration with the Interdisciplinary Consortium for Research and Educational Access in Science and Engineering (InCREASE), will offer attendees the chance to learn about synchrotron science, supercomputing, and nanoscience — and the research techniques and operations related to those fields. InCREASE members will be in the audience.

Stephen Streiffer, the deputy laboratory director for Science & Technology and the interim associate laboratory director for Photon Sciences, will deliver the keynote. Representatives from the Advanced Photon Source, the Center for Nanoscale Materials, the Structural Biology Center, and the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility will present 5-minute introductory lectures.

After each mini-lecture, participants can engage each speaker in audience Q&A sessions, with a more general Q&A session at the end of the workshop. The workshop will also include information on Argonne’s Visiting Faculty Program.

Registration is required for this workshop.
