High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

SESSION: BIOLOGY/MATHEMATICS: Introduction to Computational Statistics using R

EVENT TYPE: Education

TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Randall J. Pruim

Presenter(s):Randall Pruim, Jeff Krause


This session will introduce participants to using statistical approaches in biology, physics, mathematics and engineering. Participants will use R to access data, summarize it numerically and graphically, and combine these skills to perform randomization methods in statistics. Randomization methods (e.g., permutation tests and bootstrap intervals) are becoming increasingly popular as access to sufficient computational power is becoming more widespread. Participants will also be introduced to the discussion in the statistics education community about whether, why, and how to use randomization methods as the foundational concept in introductory computation courses. Assumed background: basic computer literacy; basic statistics.
