(not so) Odd Pairings: UM SEEDS Symposium 4/19/2018

“(not so) Odd Pairings”


A UM SEEDS Program Symposium

Thursday, April 19, 2018 | 11:00 AM-3:00 PM


Hybrid individuals, who have computational skills in their toolbox in addition to their domain skills and interests, will likely have a larger role to play in creating the next technological innovations. The Odd Pairings symposium for graduate and undergraduate students is designed as a deep dive into interdisciplinary pairings between a number of disciplines and computational science. This symposium is one step towards integrating interdisciplinary skills deeper into our academic environment and making them part of our culture.

The symposium will begin with a keynote address by John Rothenberg from Sosolimited who will represent the (not so) odd pairing between art and computer science, framing interdisciplinarity as something closely intertwined with creativity, and challenging assumptions about who can use programming. The keynote address will be followed by a panel of UM faculty representing additional, diverse examples of interdisciplinary pairings. The symposium will conclude with break-out mentoring sessions for students to connect with each of the panelists and the invited speaker.

All students, regardless of discipline, department, school, or college, are welcome.
