In its fifth year, the annual showcase provides a unique opportunity for students in the computing and information technology fields to present their research. The intent is to broaden students' expertise and prepare them for careers in their fields. This is an excellent forum for students and staff from the various computing divisions to network and to discuss and celebrate the student’s work.

About the Sponsors

This year the seventh annual, NSF-funded, Computer System, Cluster, and Networking Summer Institute (CSCNSI), co-hosted by the Information Science and Technology Institute (ISTI), under the LANL Institutes Office, and the New Mexico Consortium, offered 12 students the opportunity to attend a nine-week summer school. The Summer Institute is a focused technical enrichment program targeting third-year college undergraduate students currently engaged in a computer science, computer engineering, or similar major. The program emphasizes practical skill development in setting up, configuring, administering, testing, monitoring, and scheduling computer systems, supercomputer clusters, and computer networks through a variety of activities including hands-on technical training, lectures, professional development seminars, and tours of LANL facilities.

Students work in small project teams to execute real-world projects on computer clusters that they assemble and configure. A university instructor provides class instruction, and LANL subject matter experts mentor team projects. Students develop written and oral communications skills through critiqued presentations and present their work at a technical poster session at the conclusion of the Summer Institute. The summer institute is also an innovative, proactive approach to making the students aware of career possibilities within the Laboratory.
