Pre-arrival installation instructions will be sent to all successful applicants one week before the event. Please install everything before you arrive or contact Ross if you encounter difficulties.
The evening before the workshop (Monday 27th July), there will be an optional social meetup for attendees on campus. Those with unresolved installation problems are strongly encouraged to attend this pre-event with their computers to resolve these problems before the actual workshop day where there will be no time allocated for installation issues. It's an installfest.
Places limited to 25ish people at maximum. If more apply, a waitlist will be created. Places may be prioritized for early career researchers: PhD students and postdocs.
Bring your own portable computer: mac / windows / linux
No 'coding' ability required per se, although we will be using command-line tools!
