Please note the attached announcement for the first Louisiana Industry ¬Academia Collaborative Workshop. Louisiana EPSCoR and the Board of Regents plan to host a series of these workshops with this first one focused on Materials and Energy. The purpose of the workshop is to foster interactions between some of Louisiana’s leading researchers and representatives of Louisiana’s industrial R&D community. We also hope to identify and begin to address policies and mechanisms that may advance fruitful synergisms between academia and industry.

The first workshop is scheduled for October 15, 2010, from noon to 5:30 PM with a reception following in the Marriott in Baton Rouge, LA. The Materials and Energy workshop will feature speakers from industry and academia. Industry representatives will provide insights into their research needs and challenges and university intellectual property officers will describe research innovations that could be particularly relevant to Louisiana's business and industry. University researchers will have posters that describe some of their research programs and related innovations. Lunch will be provided. Seating is limited. Registration required (deadline: October 8, 2010). Please see attached registration form.

This message has been distributed to all faculty.

I would like to bring to your attention the proposed LI/LaSIGMA Seminar Series. The series is intended to allow faculty and staff to present their research which involves high performance computing to other researchers around the state. The series would host speakers from different institutions and each lecture is to be broadcast via the Access Grid to all LI /LaSIGMA sites. Each LI site is required to host at least one speaker per semester. UNO is currently scheduled for October 21 but November 18, December 2 and December 16 are still open and we could schedule our turn on that date. If you are conducting research involving high performance computing and would like to present your research in an approximately 50 minute talk as part of the LI/LaSIGMA Seminar Series please let me know.
