JICS/IGMCS Seminar Series

Every year, students, faculty and staff from many parts of the University participate in a series co-hosted by the Joint Institute for Computational Science (JICS) and the Interdisciplinary Graduate Minor in Computational Sciences program (IGMCS). These organizations offer a series of tutorials and seminars designed to provide UTK students, faculty, and staff with practical information about using UTK’s computational science resources, as well as other associated opportunities for participation and collaboration.

Seminars and tutorials in the series are given by personnel from NICS, RDAV, UTK’s Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL), and OIT’s Research Computing Support team. The series are held on Thursdays starting at 2pm, in Claxton 233. All interested students, faculty, and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend. For more information, contact Jim Ferguson (

A detailed list of session topics can be viewed at the JICS/IGMCS Seminar Series website.

NIMBioS Tutorials

An NSF-funded Center located at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, NIMBioS provides a platform for the talents of top researchers from around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to find creative solutions to today’s complex biological problems.

Personnel from NICS and RDAV have served on leadership committees, helped organize, and delivered training at multiple Tutorials hosted by NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

Collaborations with CIRE

The Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education (CIRE) brings together extensive and complementary resources at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to increase science, technology, engineering, and mathematics research of national significance. In order to accomplish this task, CIRE has created two exceptional doctoral programs that will attract the best and brightest graduate students to come and solve the most challenging energy-related problems facing the nation and the world today.

NICS shares facilities at ORNL with the Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research & Education, and provides a number of the students enrolled there with computing time to support their program.
