The SDSC Summer Institute is targeted at individuals interested in data science and computational science - especially current and potential users of SDSC's data-intensive resources. Familiarity with UNIX/Linux environments is recommended. Some programming experience in C/C++, Fortran, Java, R, Python, Perl, MATLAB or other languages is preferred. Applicants already dealing with data science and/or computational science problems are especially encouraged to apply.

All applicants will be reviewed and considered based on expertise supporting the curriculum of the summer institute. Application period is March 1, 2016 - May 6, 2016.  Applicants will be reviewed and notified of status by May 27, 2016.     All accepted applicants are asked to register no later than Friday, June 10 in order to confirm attendance.

In support of the Summer Institute, supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), SDSC awards a limited number of scholarships to cover on-campus room and board (dorm style – private room, shared common area and bathrooms). Indicate on application if you would like to be considered for room and board scholarship. Scholarship funds only apply to room and board and are not available for any other travel expenses. Registration fee of $300 is still required from all attendees.

Summer Institute attendance and on-campus housing is limited so you are encouraged to apply early.
