First Friday Lunch - May 6, 2016

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.


James Smith, PhD Candidate in GeosciencesOn Friday, May 6th, 2016, we will be joined by James A. Smith, a PhD Candidate in the Department of Geosciences Seismologists now research datasets of unprecedented size and complexity. For example, we are imaging the Earth's interior using over 4,000 earthquakes recorded at over 3,000 stations across the globe. In order to effectively utilize these datasets in modern seismic workflows, the data must be sensibly organized and the computational resources efficiently used. In other words, what good is a supercomputer if you are always reading and writing data? James will discuss ASDF, a modern data format for seismology that offers new ways to exchange and query large datasets, reproduce results, and decrease the time to research.



As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink) and coffee/tea. Pre-registration is preferred.

>> Looking forward to seeing you...in your orange and black! <<
