A free in-person Computational and Data Analytics workshop hosted by the Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College. Data analytics, information visualization, modeling and simulation help researchers make sense of complex and large quantities of information: leading to insight and new discoveries. Data and computational science skills can accelerate your academic research and increase your students’ employment options and graduate school opportunities.

Open to all faculty and students, the agenda includes:

  • What is XSEDE? - an introduction to XSEDE, the NSF investment in Advanced Computing Infrastructure for research and education
  • Computational Thinking for Educators – an Introduction to Adding Data Analytics, Modeling, and Simulation to Curriculum
  • XSEDE New User Training – Tour of the XSEDE User Portal, Introduction to XSEDE Resources and Services, Requesting Access, Submitting Jobs, Transferring Files, and Getting Help
  • Introduction to Python – a popular programming language used by software engineers, analysts, data scientists, and machine learning engineers, this session will cover the basics
  • No Cost Resources for Cluster Administration – this session presents a toolset a set of tools based on the Rocks cluster manager and other Open-Source software commonly used in scientific computation, provided for system administrators who need to build a new cluster or rebuild an existing one from scratch.

Attend the entire workshop or just one or two sessions. For each session attended, you will receive proof of participation that can be used for recognition of professional development or proof of attendance to satisfy a class assignment.

Schedule a Consulting Session: If you have a project or an idea, request a consulting meeting. Send your name, times that you will be available during the workshop hours, a brief statement of your research or a copy of an abstract, and any specific questions to John Holly
