This half-day session will provide an introduction to basic concepts of high-performance computing. It is intended to be a high level primer for those largely new to HPC, and serve as a foundation upon which to build over the coming days. Topics will include motivation for HPC, available HPC resources, essential issues, problem characteristics as they apply to parallelism, and a high level overview of parallel programming models. Location: Wilson Hall - New College, WI 1016

This 1 day course will introduce python packages and approaches for medical imaging applications (MRI specifically). We will give an overview of specific command line based tools (freesurfer/FSL) for image analysis introduce how to interface with them using python. Specific python packages will be for nibabel (for MR image i/o), nilearn (for plotting/visualization) and nipype (for pipeline development/parallelization).

Working with many of the HPC systems in Ontario involves using the Linux/UNIX command line. This provides a very powerful interface, but it can be quite daunting for the uninitiated. In this half-day session, you can become initiated with this course. This hands on session will cover basic commands and scripting, as well as touching on some powerful constructs like awk. It could be a great boon for your productivity! Location: SciNet Teaching Room MaRS 1140

This half-day session offers a brief introduction to R, with a focus on data analysis and statistics. We will discuss and introduce the following topics: the R interface, primitive data types, lists, vectors, matrices, and data frames - a crucial data type in data analysis and a trademark in the R language. Advanced topics to be covered include: basics statistics and function creation; *apply family functions; and basics of scripting. Time depending we may cover and discuss some data management strategies (ie. saving results, workspaces and installing packages) and basic plotting.
