Seminars are usually held on Wednesday at 15:00 in E005, but you should check the seminar details for exceptions. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this seminar series.
This series of talks/seminars has the intention of sharing some practical computing skills in the department.
The talks are primarily aimed at PhD students in the early part of their PhDs, though they might also be of interest to students further through their PhDs and perhaps even others in the department. The idea is for older PhD students, and maybe other researchers, to share some tips and techniques that they’ve learnt from their own research in whichever software tools they use. It is hoped that this way we can share some useful tips and techniques and avoid new researchers having to spend a long time googling for ways to solve some common problems.
Supplementary files for these talks can be found here.
