With funding provided by the XSEDE program, and with additional funds from NCSI, there is no fee to attend any NCSI workshop this year.

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.

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.
