Workshops
info  Workshop on analyzing stresses in moleculesVarious Speakers Nov 4-5, 2019 ECTS-Points: not yet determined
Abstract, registration & information:
This workshop aims at discussing and devising new and unifying concepts to calculate and understand molecular stresses in complex materials. Such molecular stresses can stem from quantum chemical calculations, atomistic or coarse-grained Molecular Dynamics simulations. They could be inherent to the system, i.e. reflect intrinsic tension or pre-stress, or build up upon applying external mechanical perturbations.

In an informal workshop we will bring together experts from the relevant scientific areas, computational physics, materials science, and biological matter, and will leave room for a few contributed talks from participants as well as many discussions among speakers and participants. There is the possibility to participate in a small practical workshop on force distribution analysis (FDA).

The workshop is completely free of charge.

info  Agile management approaches for research groupsManuela Schmidt December 4, 2019, 9:00-15:15 ECTS-Points: 1
Abstract, registration & information:
Scrum is an agile framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products. Kanban uses a visual system for managing work as it moves through a process, allowing team members to see the state of every piece of work at any time.

Both of them are agile approaches to project management. Agile project management is one answer to the growing speed in which projects need to be delivered and the realization that many projects are not delivered as originally planned. This is especially true for projects with volatile or unclear requirements at project start.

Concepts like continuous improvement, fast feedback cycles, limiting work in progress and transparency can bring value to teams as well as to individuals.

During this workshop you will learn:

- What is Agile? Get an overview of agile principles, values, techniques and methods
- How to use Kanban for your personal use? Boost your productivity and get things done!
- How can Kanban be introduced to a team? Streamline work between team members and create transparency on status
- How can Scrum be adapted in an academic environment? Use a process framework to improve collaboration and knowledge-sharing between lab members and cut down your fixed meeting times

Program:

9:00-12:00

- Agile introduction - origins, mindset & term definition
- Introduction to Scrum Framework
- Introduction to Kanban
- Applying theory into practice (Part 1)
- Personal Kanban - how to gain focus and transparency in your daily work

13:00-15:15

- Applying theory to practice (Part 2)
- Kanban for teams - lightweight way to introduce an agile method to a team
- LabScrum - a process framework to manage work in academic scientific research

Abstract, registration & information:
Industry’s demand for using big data analysis tools is growing evermore. Public clouds developed in recent years have provided various data analysis tools for analysts, data scientists, researchers, and academics without the burden of permanently allocating and continuously maintaining high performance computing facilities. Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is one of the public cloud providers with a variety of state-of-the-art products addressing wide range of challenges in data engineering and data analytics.
The internet age and growth of social networks was a game changer for human sciences. If previously researchers and analysts had to carefully design data collection processes, now people are sharing their thoughts and concerns on a daily (or hourly) basis. In this workshop we are going to introduce GCP pipelines from streaming Twitter API’s data into a data warehouse. Afterwards, we will perform sentiment analysis and network analysis to find the patterns in user’s behavior. Finally, using visualization tools in python, we will prepare effective communication of the results.

Target Group:

- Students majoring in economics,
information systems and natural sciences.

Hardware/ Software Requirements (Student):

- Laptop

- Anaconda

Abstract, registration & information:
! Postponed until Autumn 2020 !

IIT Guwahati and Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) of Heidelberg University jointly organise the 2nd RTG Big Data Research Summer School 2020. The event will take place from March 23–27, 2020 at one of the most prestigious institutes in in India — IIT Guwahati. The summer school is aimed at advanced master students and PhD students with a background in scientific computing and mathematics.

Renowned experts will hold lectures and seminars on up to date topics and state of the art methods in big data computing and mathematics. The speakers will be researchers predominately from India and Heidelberg University, Germany. Participating students will actively discuss with the experts, solve problems during workshop sessions and some will have the opportunity to present their own research. This provides unique opportunities to the students to hone their skills.
