UTC-IASE attends Mathworks Research Summit

Dr. Ebad Jahangir chaired the Education mini symposium at the MathWorks Research Summit where leading educators from across the globe presented and discussed future directions of computational education and thinking in university curricula.

UTC-IASE was invited by MathWorks to the fourth annual MathWorks Research Summit held June 4–6 at the Newton Marriott in Newton, Massachusetts. This invitation-only event serves to bring together inspiring peers from adjacent research areas and set directions that redefine the frontiers of research with impact and value. This multidisciplinary summit provides a forum for candid exchange with highly acclaimed thought leaders, industry and government experts, and MathWorks senior management about technical challenges, opportunities, and solution attempts to help focus and collaborate on promising research efforts.

The summit features lively discussions interspersed with exciting technical talks to disseminate knowledge, germinate ideas, inspire applications, discover successes in related fields, recognize trends, and identify research needs. Participants can also socialize and network with people who govern professional organizations, have experience in organizing research programs and projects, and share guidance on workforce teaching and training.
