Summer Conference

Since its inception in 2003, each summer MU3C has held a 2-3 day research conference hosted by one or more computational faculty at research institutions in the Midwest. Participation in the conference allows students to deepen their understanding of their research and to develop their oral communication skills. Listening to research talks from other students as well as from the faculty hosts will allow the participants to gain a better understanding of the full breadth of computational methodology as well as the variety of research areas to which they can be applied.

The summer conference also allows students to explore some of the top graduate programs in the country through panel discussions and departmental tours with current graduate students, and through interactions with our faculty hosts.
