CSAIL hosts 3rd annual Julia conference June 21-25

Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing.

The third Julia conference will take place June 21-25 at CSAIL.

Named for the programming language that was developed at CSAIL, the conference features cutting-edge technical talks, hands-on workshops, a chance to rub shoulders with Julia's creators, and a weekend in a city known for its historical significance and colonial architecture.

Keynote speakers this year include:

  • Timothy E. Holy, Associate Professor of Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis;
  • Thomas J. Sargent , a Nobel Prize-winning Professor of Economics at New York University and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution; and
  • Guy L. Steele Jr., a Software Architect for Oracle Labs, Principal Investigator of the Programming Language Research project, and co-designer of the programming languages Scheme, Fortress and Java.

Talks in previous years tackled problems in such diverse fields as bioinformatics, economics, numerical optimization, parallel computing, web development, and more. REGISTER NOW!
