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.
Bridging mathematics, computing, and quantitative science with biology for undergraduate education: A workshop for 21st Century biology education.
This workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about and share new ideas, materials, and tools for integrating mathematics and physical sciences with biology through computational tools and resources. There will be ample opportunity for hands on work in launching and enhancing teaching materials. There will be three components to the workshop:

Conceptual foundations and use of bioinformatics and simulation tools
Existing examples of incorporation of bioinformatics and simulation tools in teaching
Development of new materials.

Computing in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences
For persons interested in an introduction to computational and high performance computing tools and techniques applicable to undergraduate humanities, arts and social science courses. This workshop is recommended for faculty and graduate students new to computational research tools and approaches, as well as those who have previously attended one of the HASTAC or CHASS workshops, but still feel they need an expanded introduction. This workshop is being held simultaneously at the following two locations via a video-conference link between the two sites.

Green's Function Monte Carlo 40th Anniversary Symposium
GFMC40 is a two-day symposium to honor Malvin H. Kalos, taking place on May 11 and 12th, 2007. The symposium is celebrating Malvin's more than 40 years of contributions to condensed matter physics, Monte Carlo methodology and computational science. The event will be held at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, where much of the development and application of Green's function Monte Carlo took place.

Integrating Computational Science into the Undergraduate Curriculum
The goal of the workshop is to give faculty, from a variety of fields, the foundation for incorporating computational science into their undergraduate courses. The workshop is intended for faculty who have used some computational science tools in their research or teaching, or have completed an introductory workshop on computational science. Those completing the workshop will prepare or adapt at least one instructional module to use in their classroom along with an implementation plan for that instruction. The topics that we are prepared to cover if four or more people are interested:

Introduction to Modeling and Simulation
Computational physics
Computational chemistry
Structural modeling
Computational fluid dynamics
Computational biology

Introduction to Interdisciplinary Computational Science Education for Educators
For persons interested in an in-depth introduction to computational science tools and techniques as may be applied in undergraduate math and science courses. This level is recommended for persons new to the notion of computational science as well as those who have attended one of the short (1-3 day) workshops such as a Supercomputing meeting or a NCSI campus visit, but still feel they need a detailed introduction.

Parallel and Cluster Computing, with an emphasis on Biology and Chemistry
This workshop will begin with an emphasis on parallel and cluster computing in an educational setting as well as teaching issues in parallel computing. Examples suitable for classroom use will be presented, including both simple codes that can be made available for student modification and more complex examples that use state of the art open source community codes. Participants will learn about the use of the Bootable Cluster CD computing environment, and will receive copies of the BCCD software for their use. Current protocols for parallel programming will be covered.

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to be introduced to computational biology and computational chemistry tools and resources. Participants will be introduced to dynamic modeling, bioinformatics, simulation, molecular modeling, mathematical software and visualization. Participants new to computational science are encouraged to attend. Also, prior participants are encouraged to apply.

Partnership for Integration of Computation into Undergraduate Physics Visioning WORKshop
There are two goals for this workshop;
1. A collection of instructional proto-modules that use computation as an integral part of
their learning objectives;
2. A record of critical discourse to support creation of a white paper laying out strategic
guidelines for systematic development of a full body of instructional resources that
integrate computation into undergraduate physics.
