We are organising a series of workshops and training schools in computational discrete mathematics. By now, we have held the first two of our events:
- First CoDiMa Training School in Computational Discrete Mathematics (University of Manchester, November 16th-20th, 2015)
- First Joint GAP-SageMath Days (University of St Andrews, January 18th-22nd, 2016, with a GAP coding sprint on January 13th-16th).
The First CoDiMa Training School in Computational Discrete Mathematics took place at the University of Manchester on November 16th-20th, 2015. This school was intended for PhD students and researchers from UK institutions. It started with the hands-on Software Carpentry workshop covering basic concepts and tools, including working with the command line, version control and task automation, continued with introductions to GAP and SageMath systems, and was followed by the series of lectures and exercise classes on a selection of topics in computational discrete mathematics. The school finished by Friday lunchtime, with an option to stay for the NBSAN (North British Semigroups and Applications Network) meeting on Friday afternoon.
The First Joint GAP-SageMath Days took place at the University of St Andrews on January 18th-22nd, 2016. It was preceded by a GAP coding sprint on January 13th-16th. The focus of this event was on improving GAP-SageMath integration and interaction between our systems.
