SNS FiRe Conference Names SCI Institute a Global Academic Partner
Strategic News Service (SNS) is proud to announce that the SCI (Scientific Computing and Imaging) Institute: has been selected as an honored Academic Partner of the 12th annual SNS Future in Review (FiRe) technology conference. Described by The Economist as “the best technology conference in the world,” FiRe features global thought leaders in technology and the global economy, including Elon Musk, Paul Jacobs, Mark Hurd, Vint Cerf, Leroy Hood, Azim Premji, Craig Venter, Michael Dell, and many others.
Over the past decade, the SCI Institute has established itself as an internationally recognized leader in visualization, scientific computing, and image analysis applied to a broad range of domains. SCI’s overarching research objective is to conduct application-driven research in the creation of new scientific computing techniques, tools, and systems. The SCI Institute focuses on computational and imaging problems in such disciplines as biomedicine, geophysics, combustion, molecular dynamics, fluid dynamics, and atmospheric dispersion.
“We are excited to become part of the FiRe community. After participating in FiRe 2013, we were enthusiastic about coming back to FiRe 2014 to meet and hear from international thought and technology leaders and discuss possible research and development alliances with FiRE attendees and members. We are also thrilled to be FiRe’s first academic partner and hope to pave the way for more of the thought leading groups in academia to join the FiRe community” said Christopher Johnson, founding director of the SCI Institute.
“We are delighted to have established this more formal relationship with the SCI Institute. A very large fraction of the supervisualization DNA out in the world today had its roots there, and SCI is best-of-breed in this critically important aspect of tomorrow’s computing solution set. We are only just beginning to benefit from these tools, and I know that our SNS and FiRe communities will be among the first to appreciate what SCI has to offer,” said Mark Anderson, FiRe Chair and SNS CEO.
