Information for Participants

  • Labs:
    • The Participants need to bring in laptops to participate in the hands-on sessions. Some of the sessions (the ones in Stream 1) will be conducted directly on the laptops, while others (Stream 2) are done on remote systems that are accessed through ssh and wireless.
    • We recommend to install an ssh client on your laptop. For Linux and Mac systems, such a client is part of the OS. For Windows, a free client can be obtained from the MobaXterm web site.
    • You will also need the capability to display X11 output. For Linux systems, this works automatically. For Mac systems with a newer OS you will need to install the free XQuartz app from http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/. For Windows, the MobaXterm ssh client includes this feature.
    • The best way to access wireless is Eduroam. If you have credentials from a Canadian University, access is simple. If you are participating but do not have University credentials, we can supply you with guest access. Ask us about it when you're there.
    • For Stream 1 (MNT 141) students should install the software listed below. For students encountering difficulties, installation help will be provided at the workshop:
      • MobaXterm (Windows users only)
      • R
      • RStudio Release Preview
      • Python 3 (we recommend Anaconda)
      • PyCharm Community Edition
      • SQLite3 (Windows users only)
      • Git


  • Location Details:
    • The Summer School takes place in Rooms 141 and 142 in Montpetit Hall at the University of Ottawa.
