- Hack-A-Thon: Get hands-on experience writing a simple physics solver in Julia, MATLAB, or Python for a real head-to-head performance comparison.
- High Performance Computing: Learn how to use high performance computing using Boise State and Idaho National Laboratory compute clusters.
- Tools for Reproducible Science: Learn how to use containers and GitHub.
- Keynote Speaker – Ilkay Altintas: Altintas is the chief data science officer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), UC San Diego, and founder and director for the Workflows for Data Science Center of Excellence, and a fellow of the Halicioglu Data Science Institute (HDSI).
