Introduction to Scientific Computing and Matlab
Below you will find the schedule of our “Introduction to Scientific Computing and Matlab” workshops, held in the CBSU West Wing Seminar Room on Wednesdays, 11.00, between October 2014 and January 2015.
Matlab is the Swiss Army Knife of data analysis: no matter whether you are analysing neuroimaging data, behavioural data or your latest bank statements, Matlab can make you do things you thought were never possible.
Any larger data analysis at the CBU, especially for neuroimaging data, is performed on our highperformance computer cluster, using the operating system Linux. Some of our workshops will cover the basics of our computing system, good research practice in scientific computing, basic linux commands and an introduction to parallel computing.
Lectures will be combined with handson sessions. Space is limited, so it would be good if we had an idea of how many people we may have to accommodate. If you are interested, please drop me (Olaf Hauk) a line. We will also create Doodle polls for each session.
Our workshops are aimed at researchers with no or little prior experience to programming (in Matlab or otherwise). We are not intending to provide a full Matlab or Linux course, but we hope we can significantly facilitate the first few steps. For other options, see e.g. opportunities at Cambridge University (http://training.cam.ac.uk/ucs/), or online tutorials (http://imaging.mrccbu.cam.ac.uk/meg/Beginners).
You may want to have a look at other skilloriented training options.
Any suggestions of feedback on our previous lectures would be very welcome.
Except for the first lecture, all sessions will take place in the West Wing Seminar Room, on Wednesdays at 11am.
