Registration is now open for several workshops being offered during Boise State’s Research Computing Days, happening March 15-16 in the Student Union Building. The full agenda for this free event can be found here:

Registration is open for these classes:

  • Unix Shell and Git
  • Scientific Programming, including: Intro to Python, Intro to Python for Biologists, Advanced Python (machine learning), MATLAB and R
  • R2 Labs

Space is limited; register for these workshops and labs here.

Participants only need to register for the workshops and labs. Otherwise, individuals are invited to come check out Research Computing Days activities as their schedules allow, including a talk given by keynote speaker Josh Anderson from the University of Michigan, lead developer of HOOMD-blue; a poster session round-up to share computational and data-intensive research being done by students at Boise State; lightning talks to hear how Boise State researchers wrangle computing and coding tools to impact their research projects; and a team code challenge – featuring prizes – geared towards software carpentry participants to spend the afternoon tackling real-world research challenges with their new skills.

Research Computing Days is free for the campus research community and anyone looking to learn more and exchange ideas about scientific computing.
