VA-WHPC: Student Lightning Talks

October 31, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

VA-WHPC hosted 10 students as they gave lightning talks on their research to members of the HPC community from across Virginia. Each presenter had 3 minutes and 1-2 slides to tell us all about their research. The speakers used this opportunity to practice their presentation skills and share their research with a diverse audience!
