Microsoft Research presents Interdisciplinary Computing and Open Science

The Libraries invite you to attend informational sessions, "Interdisciplinary Computing and Open Science", by Microsoft Research.

Please register to help us plan for refreshments: Refreshment registration.

Interdisciplinary computing is becoming a new paradigm in academic research and education. Via interdisciplinary computing, computer science innovations are stimulated by real-world data and computational challenges; natural and social sciences are advanced by applying the new computing technologies to the transformation of data to information and to knowledge. By collaborating with academic partners in many difference fields, Microsoft has been a strong player in interdisciplinary computing over the last decade. Please join us to learn about Microsoft Research (MSR), their vision and strategy in interdisciplinary computing, examples of collaborations between MSR and the academia, and demos of MSR innovative software.

This event is also meant for you to rub elbows with your colleagues in other disciplines and MSR visitors and exchange experiences and thoughts about interdisciplinary computing. Please come with your questions and contribute to creating a mind-swap experience for the event.
