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.

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.
