Introduction to Research Computing

UWM's Research Computing support group is offering a FREE, two-day workshop on research computing and computer programming for anyone who uses computers as part of their research.
This course is an overview of computational research and an introduction to scientific programming. The primary goals are to help researchers determine what types of computational tools to use for their research, and to provide an introduction to computer use and computer programming.
Classes will be part lecture and part open discussion among researchers and support staff. We hope that these meetings will result in the spread of knowledge in all directions and help establish new connections between researchers with common interests. Registration required.
