The opening remarks were given by the University’s Executive Vice President Donald R. Lehman. Among the topics covered at the symposium were computational fluid dynamics, crash analysis simulations, advanced computer systems and programming models, computational high-energy physics, and computational chemistry. In addition to the presentations given by SEAS and other GW faculty, leaders from various federal agencies and government laboratories also addressed the symposium. Among them were the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Science Foundation, Naval Research Laboratory, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
