FOR RELEASE: August 29, 2022

The Cornell Center for Advanced Computing announced the CAC Research Computing Seminar Series for Fall 2022:

Computational Resources for Cornell Researchers

Thurs., Sept. 22, 2022 at 12:15 to 1:15 pm

Do you need to scale up your computation and find larger resources? The Cornell Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) can help you find and use resources available on campus, through national allocations, and in the cloud. This lunch seminar describes the array of computational resources available to faculty and student researchers at Cornell and in the national community, how to gain access to them, and how to get support to use them efficiently. Speaker: Rich Knepper, CAC Director, and CAC staff.

Interactive Data Visualization with Bokeh

Wed., Oct. 26, 2022 at 12:15 to 1:15 pm

Bokeh ( is a software package that supports the interactive visualization and investigation of complex datasets. As part of the Python ecosystem for scientific computing and data science, Bokeh combines a Python front-end that enables programmers to design custom visualizations with a JavaScript-based back-end that allows for interaction within web browsers. This lunch seminar provides an overview of some of the capabilities and uses of Bokeh, ranging from the generation of interactive figures to the construction of dynamic application and web servers that support user-driven data analyses. Speaker: Chris Myers, Senior Research Associate at CAC and Adjunct Physics Professor.

Displaying Scientific Data with Tableau

Thurs, Nov. 17, 2022 at 12:15 to 1:15 pm

Tableau is a popular and capable software product for creating charts that present data and dashboards that allow you to explore data. It is typically used to present business or statistical data, but can also create compelling visualizations of scientific data. However, scientific data is often generated or stored in formats that are not immediately accessible by Tableau. This lunch seminar will explore the data formats that work best with Tableau and the available mechanisms for generating scientific data (or converting it to) those formats so you can apply the full power of Tableau to create the best possible visualizations of your data. Speaker: Ben Trumbore, CAC Computational Scientist.

CAC Fall 2022 Research Computing Seminars will take place in Room 401 of the Physical Sciences Building. Registration is not required. Cornell faculty, students and staff are welcomed. Box lunches to go will be available to attendees at the seminar’s completion (note: 40 seats available/room capacity 65).

Details on CAC Research Computing Seminars are available at Cornell Events:
