Special Events


Young Researchers Networking Event - Saturday, 16:00-18:30
Opportunity for PhD students and Postdocs to connect ahead of the conference in the absence of faculty, and share snippets of their favorite scientific approaches over light bites at NECSI. Those joining for the sunset cruise directly afterwards will walk to the dock together. Register here.
Sunset Cruise - Saturday, 19:00-21:00

Welcome to Boston! Join us for a relaxing 2 hour summer sunset cruise along the Charles River, and take in the beautiful Boston skyline over a drink and canapés. Ticket price is $57.00 per person, and includes canapés. Beverages will be available for purchase. Register here.

Reception - Sunday, 16:30-19:00, President's Ballroom CD

At the end of the first full day of the conference, we will be hosting a formal welcome reception celebrating ICCS, followed by the special Reception Session. Register here.

We are pleased to confirm Stephen Wolfram will be the featured presenter at the Reception Session. Stephen Wolfram is the creator of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language; the author of A New Kind of Science; and the founder and CEO of Wolfram Research. He has been a pioneer in the development and application of computational thinking, and has been responsible for many discoveries, inventions and innovations in science, technology and business. In May 2009, he released Wolfram|Alpha which has been widely regarded as a historic step in defining a new dimension for computation and artificial intelligence—and is now relied on by millions of people every day to compute answers both directly and through intelligent assistants such as Siri.

Networking Event - Tuesday, 12:50-13:50, Charles View Ballroom (16th floor)
This lunchtime Networking Event will allow you to connect with the wider ICCS community. During the session, you will meet and greet peers far from your usual network and learn more about each other through informal conversation. Sit down at a table, pick a question card, and share tidbits of research and interests. The session will include several breaks, allowing you to switch tables and mix with a wider variety of profiles from the conference. Time to make ICCS a smaller world! Register here.
Networking and Cocktails at Sunset - Tuesday, 20:00-21:30, Charles View Ballroom (16th floor)
Join us in the Charles View Ballroom (on the 16th floor) for breathtaking views of the Boston skyline at sunset. There will be a cash bar and plenty of open space for mingling. This event is open to all conference attendees.
"Unconference" - Wednesday, 12:30-13:50, Pavilion
Turning the conference on its head! Stepping out of the conventional conference model, the Unconference session will create space for self-organised, peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity over lunch! All conference participants will be able to propose "hosting" a session on a topic they’re interested in. Other participants will be invited to vote for the session that inspire them most. The top sessions will then be granted space to allow for open, interactive discussions and lively debates confronting diverse perspectives! Register here.
To propose or join a session, follow this link
Banquet - Wednesday, 17:50-20:30, President's Ballroom CS

We are delighted to invite you to an elegant evening event, with a three course dinner, and keynote presentation. $78.00 per person. Reserve your seat and select your dietary options here.

Spencer Wells has been confirmed as our keynote speaker for the Banquet Session. Spencer Wells is the founder and CEO at Insitome, former Explorer-in-Residence at National Geographic, and Director of the Genographic Project. Wells launched the Genographic Project in 2005 as a multiyear research initiative of the National Geographic Society. The Project's renowned scientists are using cutting-edge genetic and computational technologies to analyze historical patterns in DNA from participants around the world to better understand our shared genetic roots.
