2018 Workshops

Shodor > NCSI > 2018 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.
  • Lunch and breaks during workshop hours will be provided to all participants (breakfast and dinner 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 will be provided at no cost to the participant.
  • 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 first register for the workshop and then complete the scholarship application.
  • No other expenses are covered.
Community Building for Parallel Computing Curriculum Development
Starting with classroom-tested modules and materials, we will identify additional application areas that can serve as exemplars for different approaches to parallelization. The participants will then help develop action plans for the creation of new modules. We expect all materials to run on a variety of platforms. If you have a LittleFe cluster, please bring it to the workshop. If not, you can start by borrowing one of ours as we extend the materials to the variety of architectures accessible through XSEDE.

Computational Chemistry for Chemistry Educators
This workshop focuses on how computer technology can be used to enhance and improve the educational experience of students. Non-expert college faculty will be introduced to the basics of molecular modeling through lectures followed by hands-on sessions in the computer laboratory. In addition to molecular modeling techniques, other free and low-cost visualization, modeling, simulation, and mathematics software will be introduced via hands-on activities. Participants will have time to begin development of curriculum materials for use in the classroom. Free access to molecular modeling software for educational uses will also be provided beyond the end of the workshop.
