Workshops

The week-long workshop program from January 13-17, 2014 featured instruction in software tools for modeling, analysis, scientific computing and visualization, as well as how to use cluster, grid and cloud resources available to Harvard faculty, students and staff. This year, we offered an expanded program with additional sessions in Python, MATLAB, and high-performance computing. We also welcomed NVIDIA and Julia to the workshop line-up for the first time.

While the workshops were not videotaped, workshop materials from the presenters can be found on the Workshop Details page.
