SILO Seminar Series

Wednesday, Oct 22 | 12:30 p.m.
This event, which includes lunch, is free and open to graduate students from across campus. Researchers from computer sciences, engineering, mathematics and statistics make up the core of the Systems, Information, Learning and Optimization (SILO) research group at UW-Madison, but those from other fields are strongly encouraged to participate.

SILO aims to build a community of mathematically minded researchers interested in computational and mathematical sciences. SILO is about breaking down the "silos" of research created by academic department boundaries. Recent advances in information science are allowing scientists and researchers to sense, process and share data in ways and scales previously impossible. These developments have the potential to benefit work happening in a wide range of disciplines. SILO's purpose is to help realize such potential by providing the time and space for researchers to present and interact to find common threads.
