2013 Workshops


Shodor > NCSI > 2013 Workshops

Costs and Scholarships

  • With funding provided by the National Science Foundation through the XSEDE program, with additional funds from NCSI, there is no fee to attend any NCSI/XSEDE workshop this year.
  • Meals and breaks during workshop hours will be provided to all participants (other meals typically not provided).
  • While most participants are expected to be within commuting distance of the workshop location, a limited number of spaces in each workshop will be available for those traveling to a workshop from a greater distance and who would need housing. For those accepted to a workshop, this housing (double occupancy) will be provided at no cost to the participant. Those requesting single occupancy will be responsible for the difference.
  • Subject to funding, a limited number of travel scholarships may also be available as reimbursements for receipted travel to more distant faculty interested in attending the workshops. The scholarships will provide partial or full reimbursement of travel costs to and from the workshops. Preference will be given to faculty from institutions that are formally engaged with the XSEDE education program and to those who can provide some matching travel funds. Recipients are expected to be present for the full workshop. Those interested in a travel scholarship should complete the scholarship application, which can be submitted after you apply for the workshop and is available from the page where you review your application.
  • All other incidental expenses will be paid by participants.
Computational Biology for Biology Educators
Computation has become essential to the practice of contemporary biology. Story telling and concept maps, with the right tools, can quickly turn ideas in biology into dynamic, visual models. The storage, access, analysis and visualization of growing amounts of data, and the functional interpretation of complex biological phenomena require the use of a range of computational approaches and tools. This series of workshops aims to provide an introductory overview of computational resources and methods that can be used with students interested in biology or the biological applications of math at the secondary or introductory college level.

Computational Physics for Use in the Undergraduate Modern Physics Course
This workshop will give physics faculty the opportunity to explore, modify, and/or create computational materials for a traditional lower division modern physics course. Computational physics provides a third method for understanding physics that complements both theory and experiment. This synergy has become manifest in physics practice and this workshop will extend its presence into physics learning.

Intermediate Parallel Computing
This workshop will explore concepts in intermediate parallel programming and cluster computing education. Participants will learn how to teach concepts such as distributed memory, shared memory, GPGPU programming, and scaling. The workshop will include lectures and hands-on exercises using the C and Fortran programming languages with parallel implementations utilizing the Message Passing Interface (MPI), OpenMP, and CUDA.

Introduction to Computational Thinking
This workshop aims to expose participants to and inspire them with new techniques, teaching materials, and applications to use computational models in the undergraduate curriculum. By bringing faculty and teachers from different disciplines together so that they can learn how to incorporate computational models into their classrooms and research projects, it will advance the use of computing in undergraduate science education. We desire to have participants from a broad range of disciplines, including computer science, mathematics, and the physical and life sciences.

LittleFe Buildout Event
LittleFe is a portable mini-cluster which is small enough to fit in a shipping case, light enough to easily move between classrooms, and travels as standard checked baggage to conferences and workshops. LittleFe's primary focus is turnkey classroom demonstrations of, and exercises in, High Performance Computing (HPC), parallel programming, and Computational/Data Enabled Science and Engineering (CDESE). LittleFe supports shared memory, distributed memory, and GPGPU parallelism. LittleFe's secondary focus is as a production HPC resource for small institutions that are not yet able to afford or support a full scale cluster; in fact, LittleFe can be used as a gateway to, and development platform for full scale HPC resources.

LittleFe buildout events consist of participants assembling their LittleFe unit from a kit; installing the Bootable Cluster CD (BCCD) software on it; learning about the curriculum modules available for teaching parallel programming, HPC and CDESE; and learning how to develop new curriculum modules for the LittleFe/BCCD platform.
