Our Masked Guest Speakers Series

Every Sundays, 2:30pm-3:30pm AST

Contact Person: Hatem Ltaief

We have introduced our masked guest speaker series to virtually stay connected with our peers, while breaking the home-office routine.

Every week, we have a masked guest speaker opening our HiCMA weekly meeting by giving a remote informal talk on broad topics related to numerical linear algebra, high performance computing, programming models and performance optimizations.

Our motto is fun and science!
