The second school on tools, techniques and methods for Computational and Data Science for High Energy Physics (CoDaS-HEP 2018) will take place on 23-27 July, 2018, at Princeton University.
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.
The CoDaS-HEP school aims to provide a broad introduction to these critical skills as well as an overview of applications High Energy Physics. Specific topics to be covered at the school include:
- Parallel Programming
- Big Data Tools and Techniques
- Machine Learning
- Practical skills like performance evaluation, use of git, etc.
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.
