1st Wyoming Computing Symposium: Emerging Computing Approaches, Technologies, and Applications   

Date: Wednesday Sept. 13, 2023
Location: University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming

The Wyoming Computing Symposium was established to showcase the computing research and development taking place in Wyoming and the region that contributes to strengthening our economy and workforce. The Symposium will focus on a different theme each year, with an aim to include emerging computing technologies and approaches, innovative applications of computing, and computing entrepreneurship and bring together those interested in supporting established and new industry and advancing the skills of the Wyoming workforce for their future careers.  The first Wyoming Computing Symposium is supported by the Blockchain Stampede and will focus on new research in emerging computing areas including quantum computing, high-performance and distributed computing, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and innovative applications of these technologies that advance science, industry, and academia. The symposium will include keynote talks, contributed short talks, poster/lightning talks and a panel.    


We welcome submissions for short talks, and posters (with an associated lightning talk) that report accomplished work as well as work in progress, we are also interested in works dealing with innovative ideas (theoretical or conceptual) with the potential for significant impact on future research. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
