2009 Workshops


Shodor > NCSI > 2009 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
This workshop will introduce college faculty to various resources that can be used to prepare students to acquire computational thinking, modeling and quantitative analysis skills that have become essential to the practice of modern biology. Hands-on sessions with software for building and running dynamic models, finding sequence motifs, inferring phylogeny and predicting structure will be coupled with pedagogy and examples of integration into the biology classroom. Hands-on tutorials on first two days will focus on: NetLogo for agent-based and system dynamics modeling; MATLAB/Scilab for flexible graphing, analysis and numerical computing; Biology Workbench for bioinformatics; and Gromacs for molecular dynamics. The focus will then shift to group work to develop materials for the classroom, with additional sessions based on participant interest.

Computational Engineering for Engineering Educators
This workshop focuses on applications of computational science in engineering and bioengineering education. The workshop will build upon earlier workshops held at SC08 Education Program in Austin, Texas and provide more in-depth work with undergraduate and graduate engineering faculty as well as interested professionals from industry. The workshop will introduce the basic competencies for modeling and simulation for undergraduate engineers and provide hands-on examples using MATLAB, Vensim, and other modeling tools. This will allow for more advanced sessions in using parallel MATLAB for signal image processing and several other possible applications, computational fluid dynamics using the Open Foam, open source package, and one or two other subareas depending upon demand.

Computational Physics for Physics Educators
This workshop focuses on physics education augmented with the resources of high performance computing (HPC). Primary workshop content draws from the traditional physics curriculum, illustrating how to reshape that content in the light of new scientific perspectives made possible by modern numerical computing. The workshop achieves this by demonstrating uses of modern computing methods and HPC to solve modern-day physics problems.

Education Program at SC09 Conference in Portland
The SC09 Education Program will occur November 14-17, 2009, in Portland, Oregon. Participants will be engaged in hands-on activities to engage them in applying computational science, grid computing and high performance computing resources in education.

Housing, travel, conference registration and meal costs are provided for participants. Participants are asked to pay a registration fee of $75 to cover food and materials. This fee will be refunded if notification of cancellations is received by October 1, 2009. Scholarships are available for people unable to cover the registration fee. Scholarship application instructions will be sent to participants once they are accepted.

Education Program participants are encouraged to stay for the full SC09 conference to benefit from all that the conference has to offer. Participants will need to cover their own housing and meals after November 17 through the remainder of the conference.

The program is open to undergraduate faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and high school teachers.

Parallel Programming and Cluster Computing
The Parallel Programming & Cluster Computing workshop focuses on techniques and tools for parallel computing. Much of this workshop concentrates on distributed parallelism (MPI); in addition, shared memory parallelism (OpenMP), instruction level parallelism, Graphics Processing Unit parallelism and hybrid shared/distributed parallelism are also explored. Participants will learn about developing, debugging, profiling and tuning of parallel applications across a variety of architectures, using tools from a variety of sources, including GNU, Intel, TotalView, and the Bootable Cluster CD. The material is designed for undergraduate faculty from a variety of disciplines who would like to add parallel computing to their undergraduate teaching and research. In addition, undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to attend alongside a sponsoring faculty member. The workshop is hands-on, with exercises in both programming and curriculum development.

SC09 Teacher Day
This is a one-day workshop and does not include housing or SC09 conference registration. It does include a full day of workshops and lunch.

Explore classroom-ready activities that bring a computational spin to your science and math lessons, and help your students understand how computing is changing the way we do science. From visualization of vast data collections, to models and simulations of complex phenomena; computational tools are essential for answering the questions that your students will face.

K12 teachers, interested administrators, and informal educators are invited to learn about the educational resources and opportunities for further professional development that are part of the Supercomputing community around the globe. Participants will go home with classroom-ready hands-on learning activities linked to national standards for K12 learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Shepherding students through Northwest Science Fair circuit science fairs? Learn about data visualization tools from the San Diego Supercomputing Center.

Teaching about ecology and the environment? Learn about how modeling tools can help us understand forest fires or predator - prey relationships, http://www.shodor.org/

Already in the goodie stockpile: Gotta Have I.T. computing resource kits from the National Center for Women in Information Technology -- posters, computing and careers info, digital media and more to come.
