Setup and Preparations

The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. Before the workshop, they should install a few specific software packages, listed in the full course information.
