Winter School for Scientific Computation

We are pleased to announce this Winter School to be held beginning at 9AM Central Time on 17 and 18 December 2014.

Last Year was very successful, you find those details here.


The goal of this Winter School will be to assist those who sign up in developing a scientific application using Mathematica. To that end we will be providing, to those who register by Thursday, 11 December 2014 a Raspberry Pie computer with a free Mathematica license. You will find links to setting this up and running Mathematica on it below.


Here are the registration and payment options:


In either case, registration allows you to participate in the School. You will receive the slide show as both a Mathematica notebook, and as pdfs. You can also have your project featured in a hardbound edition of the School Proceedings that will be published in the future.

The school will be held via Skype and TeamViewer. You will need to have these software available. Instructions will be given upon confirmed registration.
