The Hariri Science Day Awards are given annually to graduate students participating in the BU day-long Science & Engineering Research Symposium. Two $1,000 awards will be given (each split $500 for the student and $500 for the advisor) in recognition of research that exemplifies the power from adopting a computational approach in science and engineering.
- The Hariri Award for Transformative Computational Science Research
- The Hariri Award for Innovative Computing Models, Algorithms, and Systems
Respectively, these two awards are meant to reflect the two foci of the Institute’s mission of (a) discovery and innovations through the use of computational and data-driven approaches, and (b) advances in the science of computing inspired by challenges in arts and sciences, engineering, and management disciplines.
The 2012 BU Science & Engineering Research Symposium will be held on Wednesday, March 21, 2012. The deadline for poster submissions is Wednesday February 29.
