3 days online Seminar on High-Performance Computing, Artificial Neural Network, Data Visualization

November 1st November - 3rd November, 2021

Professional Development Center (PDC) of VU in collaboration with Department of Computer Science and Information Technology is organizing 3-days online seminar series from 1st-3rd November, 2021. The three days’ seminar systematically designed to target the Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Faculty members in each day’s talk. In a talk with professionals/Faculty members, an in depth knowledge in the domain of High Performance Computing (HPC), applications and case studies will be discussed. This will enable participants to think out of the box and learn how to apply the learned concepts in a case study. The talk for Postgraduate will enable the participants to give an understanding, usage and importance of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) in current era and in future. Thus, will also enable the postgraduate students to learn the methodology used in advance studies. In an Undergraduate Talk, participants will enable to learn about the basics of Data Visualization, its origin and relevant information.

Keeping in view the importance of HPC, ANN and Data Visualization, PDC in collaboration with Dept of CS and IT, Virtual University of Pakistan has planned to conduct this 3 days’ seminar on the topic “Seminars on HPC, ANN and Data Visualization”, from November 1- 3, 2021.
