The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis 
(NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Investigative Workshop, 
"Scientific Collaboration Enabled by High Performance Computing 
<http://www.nimbios.org/workshops/WS_hpc>," to be held May 13-15, 2019, 
at NIMBioS.

*Objectives:* This 2 1/2 day workshop showcases important scientific 
research using big data and high performance computing and will feature 
new developments in high performance computing. A main goal is to 
facilitate new collaborations. The workshop will include several invited 
research talks, a poster session, breakout discussion sessions and a 
panel discussion. Applicants with research in a variety of scientific 
areas, ranging from biology to climate and to biomedical engineering, 
are encouraged to apply, including faculty, postdocs and advanced 
graduate students. Apply to present your work in our poster session!

*Confirmed speakers and panelists: *Srinivas Aluru, Georgia Institute of 
Technology · Jack Dongarra, Univ. of Tennessee · Tanzima Islam, Western 
Washington Univ. · Miriam Leeser, Northeastern Univ. · Shirley Moore,
