The joint IRIS-HEP computational and data science software training event will take place from Thursday 18 July through Friday 19 July, 2024 at the University of Washington. The training event will be co-located with the US ATLAS Meeting in Seattle, WA.  

Advanced software is a critical ingredient to scientific research. Training young researchers in the latest tools and techniques is an essential part of developing the skills required for a successful career both in research and in industry.

Specific topics to be covered at the school include:

  • Columnar analysis and uproot 

  • Distributed analysis and Dask
  • Data Visualization techniques and libraries
  • Using the UChicago Analysis Facility
  • Statistical tools


The school offers a limited number of young researchers an opportunity to learn these skills from experienced scientists and instructors. Successful applicants will receive travel and lodging support to attend the school. Please apply here (deadline for applications for support is May 12)
