San Diego Supercomputer Center Summer Institute 2017

A week-long workshop held at the University of California, San Diego that focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High Performance Computing and Data Science. The program is aimed at researchers in academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing, who have problems that cannot typically be solved using local computing resources. This year’s Summer Institute continues SDSC’s strategy of bringing High Performance Computing to the Long Tail of Science, i.e. providing resources to a larger number of modest-sized computational research projects that represent, in aggregate, a tremendous amount of scientific progress.

The registration fee is $300 and includes coffee and lunch, it is due only after the application is accepted.

USDA-NIFA-CGP-006325: Higher Education Challenge Grants Program

https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=292849

Projects supported by the Higher Education Challenge Grants Program will: (1) address a state, regional, national, or international educational need; (2) involve a creative or non-traditional approach toward addressing that need that can serve as a model to others; (3) encourage and facilitate better working relationships in the university science and education community, as well as between universities and the private sector, to enhance program quality and supplement available resources; and (4) result in benefits that will likely transcend the project duration and USDA support.

If you liked Data Carpentry, you might want to attend the Software Carpentry Workshop (6-7 April)

The Software Carpentry workshop, sponsored by CEREO and WSU’s Graduate and Professional Student Association is another two-day, hands-on event geared towards those interested in developing core skills for working with data effectively and reproducibly.  This workshop covers how to use the command line, git, and building programs in R (e.g. functions, loops).  Participants work through short tutorials and practical exercises done via live coding.  No prior experience with R or programming is necessary. This workshop will be held 6–7 April 2017. Register today
