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.
SC11 Education Program Surveys
The Education Program is designed to introduce HPC and Computational and Data Enabled Science and Engineering (CDESE) techniques, technologies and resources to undergraduate faculty and high school teachers. The program assists educators in integrating HPC and CDESE into their classrooms. During SC11, the Education Program will host a four-day intensive program, focused hands-on tutorials and birds-of-a-feather gatherings, as well as formal and informal opportunities to interact with other conference attendees and exhibitors.

The SC11 Education Program will begin the morning of Saturday, November 12, and will end late in the afternoon of Tuesday, November 15.


Applications for the SC11 Education Program have closed. Please register for this workshop only if you have already been accepted to the SC11 Education Program through the SC11 Submissions site.

Computational Biology for Biology Educators
Computation has become essential to the practice of contemporary biology. 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 overview of computational resources and methods that can be used to give students exposure and experience they will need to effectively use computing in their biology careers.

Intermediate Parallel Programming & 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.

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.
