The Boot Camp has two parts, where the first is a comprehensive introduction to data-python
and unix scripting. That runs Monday to Thursday, May 21–24.
Following are topics in computational science including grid/cluster computing, neural nets,
and GPU's, which are given on Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday, May 25 to 30th, excluding Memorial
Day on Monday.
The morning sessions are 9:30am – 12:00pm and the afternoon sessions are 1:30pm – 4:00pm.
Both sessions are at the Computer Science computer lab, on the 3ird floor of the

The NSF has set up the REU program in order to involve students in meaningful
ways in ongoing research programs so as to attract talented students into
careers in science and engineering.
The full title of this program is REU Site: Scientific Computing for
Structure in Big or Complex Datasets and it is NSF grant CNS-1659144.
The REU program is described in program solicitation NSF 13-542,
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).
