You are invited to submit an abstract to give a lightning talk highlighting your research for the 4th Annual Commonwealth Computational Summit. We solicit talks from faculty from any or all Universities or Colleges in our region! Presentations are being sought in three areas: 1 – High Performance Computing-Modeling and Simulation; 2 – Data Science, Data Mining and Analytics; and 3 – Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning or New Technologies. Guidelines for Presentations: In general, presentations will be 10 minutes in length with an end of session Q&A discussion for all speakers. Presentations will focus on exciting computational oriented research conducted by faculty throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky and our region. The audience for presentations will be other faculty researchers, graduate students and industry scientists and engineers working in computational fields. Since these are lightning talks you will be expected to highlight your research interest or a particular project and suggest that you cover interesting challenges and collaborative opportunities.
Information on Submission: The following information must be submitted by Sunday, October 4, 2020. Selection of speakers will be completed by Monday October 5, 2020. A complete program will be distributed on this date. See Summit website for registration and submission of materials for speakers. You will be prompted for information such as: name, email & contact Info, affiliation/institution, title/position, area/topic of research (see below), title of the presentation and an mini-abstract (short description with a mini-speaker bio, 1 page length (total)).
Note: Optional PDF upload is also available; you will be required to submit your slides to your session chair prior to the actual event to facilitate quick and on-going talks by all speakers.
Additional description related to lightning talk topic sessions:
A) High Performance Computing, Modeling and Simulations, Computational Sciences and Engineering - potential topics include but are not limited to: applications in high performance computing (CFD, Molecular Dynamic Simulations, HEP, QCD, computational sciences/engineering challenges, etc.), complex modeling and simulations, extreme scale computing, HPC software tools, techniques and performance analysis, etc.
B) Data Science, Data Mining - data analytics, textual analytics, both structured and unstructured data/text, classification, clustering and association algorithms, data: complexity, relationship and visualization across multiple applications and disciplines including linguistics, bioinformatics, business and economics, etc.
C) Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and New Technologies including but not limited to quantum computing, neuromorphic computing, resilient systems, and edge computing etc.
The CCS Technical Program Committee and Session Chairs will review all submissions and select presentations for each topic area based upon quality of abstracts submitted, research interest/impact and mixture of topics. It should be noted that our intent is to be as inclusive and diverse as possible for these lightning talks. In addition, it is our intent that Post-Summit, all slides (PDF) for the speakers will be posted in our CCS Online Summit Proceedings.
