UWM's Research Computing support group is offering a FREE, four-day workshop on parallel computing and parallel programming for researchers with intensive computational needs.
The workshop will provide an introduction to Unix, an overview of parallel computing on clusters and grids, basics of parallel job scheduling with SLURM and HTCondor, and an introduction to parallel programming with MPI (Message Passing Interface) and OpenMP (Open Multi-Processing). Registration required.
UWM's Research Computing support group is offering a FREE, two-day workshop on research computing and computer programming for anyone who uses computers as part of their research.
This course is an overview of computational research and an introduction to scientific programming. The primary goals are to help researchers determine what types of computational tools to use for their research, and to provide an introduction to computer use and computer programming.
Classes will be part lecture and part open discussion among researchers and support staff. We hope that these meetings will result in the spread of knowledge in all directions and help establish new connections between researchers with common interests. Registration required.
Want to learn more about what other departments are researching while having breakfast on us? Meet other graduate students and post-docs in the natural and physical sciences? Join us for the "Interdepartmental Sciences Breakfast Talk" with a panel of students in the fields of biology, physics and chemistry. No registration required.
The orientation provides an overview of student resources and services on campus. It is also an opportunity to meet and network with UWM faculty, staff and other new entering students. All newly admitted graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend. Current graduate students are also welcome. Networking and reception will begin promptly at 3:00 p.m. in room 280; the main presentations will follow at 4:00 p.m. in the Zelazo Center auditorium. Sponsored by the UWM Graduate School.
Living Thinkers: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower (2013)
This 75-minute film, directed by Roxana Walker-Canton, examines the intersection of race, class and gender for Black women professors and administrators working in U.S. colleges and universities today. Through their diverse narratives, from girlhood to the present, black women from different disciplines share experiences that have shaped them, including segregated schooling as children, and the trials, disappointments and triumphs encountered in Academia. This event is part of a bi-weekly brown bag series at UWM showcasing and discussing issues related to women, multiculturalism, and diversity. Sponsored by the UWM Black Cultural Center, UWM Union Sociocultural Programming, and the UWM Women’s Resource Center. We invite graduate students across disciplines to join us for this film screening and dialogue about race, class, and gender in the academy.
Where you complete your advanced degree matters. The UWM campus welcomes you to attend our Graduate School Open House. This is the perfect opportunity for you to meet the faculty, staff, and other prospective graduate students who will help shape your graduate school experience. We look forward to seeing you.
