An Academic and Research Career Workshop for Computational and Data Sciences

Rising Stars is an intensive workshop for graduate students and postdocs who are interested in pursuing academic and research careers. Originally launched at MIT in 2012, Rising Stars events have been hosted in many different fields at institutions across the world. UT Austin's Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, Sandia National Laboratories and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are proud to partner to host the fourth Rising Stars workshop in Computational and Data Sciences, with a focus on increasing the participation of underrepresented genders in computational and data sciences. Previous workshops have been held in 2019 (Austin), 2020 (virtual), and 2022 (Albuquerque).
