initiative for Computational Science and Engineering (iCSE)
Background: 67 faculty from nine departments of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University established the initiative of the Computational Science and Engineering (iCSE). The following 17 focus areas have been identified:
Hybrid Physics-Data Driven Computational Science and Engineering
Computational Mathematics and Numerical Analysis
Parallel Computation and Petascale/Exascale Computing
Uncertainty Quantification and Stochastic Modeling
Reduced Order Modeling
Inference, Verification and Validation of Models
Multiphysics and Multiscale Modeling
Computational Biomechanics and Biology
Computational Mechanics and Materials
Graphics, Animation and Visualization
Computational Design, Decision-Making, and Finance
Meeting Goals: iCSE will administer an iCSE Affiliates Program that will actively engage industry and government partners across a broad spectrum of CSE areas. Our goal is a two-way sharing of information and resources for mutual development. The basic benefits to the iCSE partners are:
Access to an open-source software for internal use and a fee-based opportunity to commercialize technologies.
Recruiting for summer jobs, internships, and full-time positions.
Access to faculty and research results.
Access to research reports which have not been yet published in the open literature.
Further details and various membership levels will be discussed during the virtual meeting.
