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, and analyzing sequence and genomic data will be coupled with pedagogy and examples of integration into the biology classroom. Hands-on tutorials on first two days will focus on: agent-based and system dynamics modeling; stochastic simulation and phylogenetic analysis. A variety of tools will be introduced, from introductory to advanced. The focus will then shift to group work to develop materials for the classroom, with additional sessions based on participant interest.

Computational Science Statewide Workshop: Creating an Associate of Science Program
This workshop has been designed to introduce you to the emerging technology of computational science for the Ohio job market. The hands-on activities will show you how easy it is to integrate computational science into your STEM classes and help you meet the Ohio Academic Content Standards in this area. This will be a great opportunity to network with fellow Ohio STEM educators. You will be introduced to the virtual school of computational science at RRSCS. For those who are interested, information about how to develop a baccalaureate minor or associate degree in computational science at your institution will be presented.

Introduction to Computational Thinking
The purpose of these workshops is 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 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 natural sciences.

Parallel and Cluster Computing
NCSI's Parallel and Cluster Computing workshops focus on teaching faculty how to move from traditional desktop computing to modern high-performance hardware. Offerings range from end-user focused applications ready-designed for HPC to the details of creating applications designed to run on clusters, many-core machines, shared-memory machines, and graphics processing units. 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 computing and curriculum development.
