Welcome! This is the homepage for the Computational Research in Boston and Beyond (CRIBB) seminar series. Our goal is to provide a forum for interactions among scientists and engineers throughout the Boston area working on a range of computational problems. This forum consists of a monthly seminar where individuals present their work.

To subscribe to a low-traffic mailing list for announcements related to the forum, please visit the CRiB-list web page.
