High-performance Computing for Economists

August 14-16, 2017 (9:00am – 4:00pm)

Ives 111.


Who: Second through fifth-year Economics graduate students (and interested faculty). If you are required to attend TA training, you should NOT plan on attending the Wednesday session. Students from other Ph.D. programs are welcome on a space-available basis only.

The Economics Department installed a high-performance computing cluster (ECCO) in 2013 that is intended to function as a computing facility for Economics Department faculty and field of Economics graduate students. To allow students to fully leverage these resources, as well as other resources on campus and elsewhere for their research, we have prepared a boot camp that any second through fifth year graduate student may attend. The boot camp will be taught by faculty and students in the Economics Department, all of whom are knowledgeable and have experience in some aspect of high-performance computing. This is meant to be a hands-on workshop, with an exchange of experiences.

Tentative syllabus here: We will modify the actual activities based on where the workshop participants express needs and interest.

Some GRA supervisors are requiring this course, so please check with your GRA supervisor.

Registration is required. To register for this workshop, please complete and submit the form here:
