Argonne and Northwestern partner in field of Computational Neuroscience - Friday, August 31st
Argonne National Laboratory is interested in developing stronger links to the neuroscience community at Northwestern. A workshop will be held at Argonne to connect NU and ANL researchers together to build new collaborations. The invitation is open to faculty, post-docs and graduate students at Northwestern University and to Argonne Staff. Please register if you would like to attend.
The workshop will cover:
1) Examples of ongoing research
2) Computational resources at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)
3) ALCF visit: Machine room and Visualization Laboratory
4) Ideas for new research in computational neuroscience between NU and Argonne
5) Routes to successful proposals for computational time at Argonne
6) Live demonstration of some of NEURON’s features (2:00 - 5:00 PM)

Water Center to Collaborate with National Taiwan University on the Water-Energy Nexus
The Water Center Director Aaron Packman anticipates working with Professor Pen-Chi Chiang and Associate Professor Yi-Pin Lin of National Taiwan University to carry out research in an area important to the mega cities of Taipei, Taiwan and Chicago – considering the water-energy nexus in the integration of energy-efficient water technology and green infrastructure practices through a Dragon Gate project funded by the Department of International Cooperation and Science Education, a part of Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology. This award stems from a long-standing collaboration in this area between Northwestern University, Argonne National Laboratory, and National Taiwan University (NTU). Northwestern anticipates hosting NTU researchers for this project in the coming months.
Prasanna Balaprakesh, NAISE Fellow, Earns DOE Early Career Award
Dr. Balaprakesh strives to develop scalable machine learning methods that can effectively learn in complex scientific domains that have limited training data. His research includes studying methods to integrate physical models with machine learning methods; automating the design and development of machine-learning methods using exascale supercomputers; and demonstrating the efficacy of proposed approaches on applications that span DOE’s Office of Science mission areas. Argonne scientists Karen Mulfort and Zhang Jiang also received the award.
Undergraduate Research Blog
Every summer, NAISE supports undergraduate researchers to spend the summer working in a research group at Argonne. The students maintain a blog describing their work. We look forward to the 2018 cohort’s upcoming contributions to this blog!
