The 2012 UAB Research Computing Day will be held September 13, 2011 at the Hill University Center, Alumni Auditorium.

Activities this year will include a symposium on Thursday, September 13, 2011 with invited talks and contributed talks from campus researchers.

UAB Research Computing Day is dedicated to dialogs on science, engineering, and their ever present drive to advance the art of technology in opening new research frontiers. These dialogs connect with our daily operations, touch the far edges of the Internet, and intersect with the themes of national funding agencies and peer institutions. Please visit the Research Computing Day page for an verview and history of past events.
