Dear all,
The complete agenda for the forthcoming NAS Sackler Colloquium on Modelling and Visualizing Science and Technology Developments can now be found at http://www.cvent.com/events/modeling-and-visualizing-science-and-technology-developments/agenda-27b341fc9c0b4852b326d30a5b38c4b9.aspx
The colloquium will be held at the National Academy of Sciences Beckman Center in Irvine, CA on December 4-5, 2017.

The colloquium brings together researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines to present, discuss, and advance computational models and visualizations of science and technology (S&T). Existing computational models are being applied by academia, government, and industry to explore questions such as: What jobs will exist in ten years and what career paths lead to success? Which types of institutions will likely be most innovative in the future? How will the higher education cost bubble burst affect these institutions? What funding strategies have the highest return on investment? How will changing demographics, alternative economic growth trajectories, and relationships among nations impact answers to these and other questions? Large‐scale datasets (e.g., publications, patents, funding, clinical trials, stock market, social media data) can now be utilized to simulate the structure and evolution of S&T.  Advances in computational power have created the possibility of implementing scalable, empirically validated computational models. However, because the databases are massive and multidimensional, both the data and the models tend to exceed human comprehension. How can advances in data visualizations be effectively employed to communicate the data, the models, and the model results to diverse stakeholder groups? Who will be the users of next generation models and visualizations and what decisions will they be addressing.

Feel free to share the below info and attached flyer with interested colleagues.
Thanks to generous industry funding, there are travel awards available for students and postdocs.  We welcome poster and flash-talk submissions.

Sunny regards,
