GRADnet Introduction to Data Intensive Science Workshop

Who: All SEPnet DISCnet CDT students. Limited places for any SEPnet GRADnet PhD student with an interest in data intensive science techniques.

What: A 2-day workshop that will Introduce the CDT and data intensive science, comprising lectures, tutorials and examples of the benefits of data intensive science techniques as applied to current research projects.

When: 12-13 September 2018

Where: Old Thorns Country Manor, Liphook, Hampshire

Numbers: 30-35 delegates

The Data Intensive Science Centre in SEPnet (DISCnet) is a new STFC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT), with 22 core PhD students over two initial cohorts.

Introduction and induction into the DISCnet Centre for Doctoral Training: What is DISCnet? What kind of training is offered? What industry placements are available? This session gives an overview of the centre and provides information on how you can get involved.

Lunch and networking reception on the first day. This is a great networking opportunity. DISCnet students, GRADnet students, supervisory teams, and the DISCnet coordinators will get to know each other in an informal setting.

Examples in data intensive science: How does data science give the edge in your PhD? Current PhD students from several SEPnet universities will demonstrate how data intensive science techniques have helped shape their PhD research. Topics will range from astronomical surveys, to numerical simulations and particle physics accelerator data.

Tools for data intensive science in particle physics and astronomy: This session will introduce you to important packages and tools that are in use in the various research fields. We will provide help installing software and guide you through the first steps.

Requirements: A laptop computer is essential for this workshop.

Register here. Registration deadline has been extended to  Friday, 24 August 2018.

This event is free (SEPnet pays for your accommodation and course fees) for SEPnet postgraduate researchers and travel expenses incurred can be claimed from your Physics Department.
