Introduction to Scientific Computing at the CBU

Below you will find the schedule of our “Introduction to Scientific Computing at the CBU” workshops, which will be held online for new members of the CBU in November 2023.

Any larger data analysis at the CBU, especially for neuroimaging data, is performed on our high-performance 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.

Our workshops are aimed at researchers with no or little prior experience to programming. We are not intending to provide a full Linux course, but we hope we can significantly facilitate the first few steps. For other options, see e.g. opportunities at Cambridge University (, or on-line tutorials (

Individual sessions of this workshop series will be advertised via our "skillstraining" mailing list. To hear more about skills-oriented training opportunities at the CBU, please subscribe to this mailing list by sending an e-mail to skillstraining-subscribe (at) mrc-cbu (dot) cam (dot) ac (dot) uk).

You may want to have a look at other skill-oriented training options.

Any suggestions of feedback on our previous lectures would be very welcome.

The following lecture will take place in the CBU Lecture Theatre or online.
