DETAILS:

The XSEDE project is pleased to announce the opening of
registrations for faculty computational science education
workshops for 2016.

There are no fees for participating in the workshops.

The workshops also cover local accommodations and food during the
workshop hours for those outside of commuting distance to the host
sites.

This year there are three workshops at various locations focused
on Inquiry-Based Science and Mathematics Enhanced by Computational
Thinking and one workshop on the LittleFe Curriculum Module
Buildout.

The computational thinking workshops are hosted at Oklahoma State
University on May 16-18, 2016, at Boise State University on
July 18-20, 2016, and at West Virginia State University on
August 1-3.

The Little Fe curriculum workshop will be held on June 20-22 at
Shodor Education Foundation.

To register for the workshop, go to

http://computationalscience.org/workshops2016

and begin the registration process by clicking on the Register
through XSEDE button for the relevant workshop.

Participants will be asked to create an XSEDE portal account
if they do not yet have one.

Following that registration, participants will be directed back to

to provide additional information on their background and travel
plans.

A limited number of travel scholarships may also be available as
reimbursements for receipted travel to more distant faculty
interested in attending the workshops.

The scholarships will provide partial or full reimbursement of
travel costs to and from the workshops.

Preference will be given to faculty from institutions that are
formally engaged with the XSEDE education program and to those
who can provide some matching travel funds.

Recipients are expected to be present for the full workshop.
