The workshop is aimed at graduate students and researchers who want to improve their skills in using research-related software tools. We value the diversity of the mathematics software ecosystem, and promote the connections between the established solutions and related communities. We tried our best to cover most of the powerful research tools available.

  • We will start by two days of Software Carpentry training, covering the Unix shell, version control with Git, and programming with Python, delivered by Software Carpentry instructors.
  • The GAP mini-course on Wednesday will be led by Alexander Konovalov.
  • The remaining two days will be dedicated to other math-oriented research tools, such as SageMath and CoCalc (Samuel Lelièvre), LaTeX topics for the working mathematician (Nino Bašić) and contributed talks.

On Thursday afternoon there will be a problem session to give participants an opportunity to submit math problems whose solution might involve programming. There will also be time for discussion about math tools not covered in the workshop.

This event is an official Software Carpentry event and an official Sage Days event. Software Carpentry teaches researchers the computing skills they need to get more done in less time and with less pain. Sage Days are gatherings of people interested in SageMath, from newcomers to developers.

On behalf of the organisers, we look forward to meeting you in Koper in September.
