We plan two days of [[https://software-carpentry.org/|Software Carpentry]] training,
covering "the Unix shell", "version control with Git", and "programming with GAP",
delivered by Software Carpentry instructors.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, we will focus on mathematical software and
databases with lots of talks, tutorials and demos about the various software
including but not restricted to !CoCalc, DiscreteZOO, GAP, Jupyter, LaTeX, !SageMath.
The GAP mini-course on Wednesday will be led by Alexander Konovalov.

We plan to include a problem session on Thursday afternoon where people can submit
math problems whose solution might involve programming, for everyone to think about.
The remaining two days will be dedicated to other math-oriented research tools, such as SageMath and CoCalc (Samuel Lelièvre), LaTeX topics for the working mathematician (Nino Bašić) and contributed talks.

On Thursday afternoon there will be a problem session to give participants an opportunity to submit math problems whose solution might involve programming. There will also be time for discussion about math tools not covered in the workshop.

Software tools for mathematics • Koper, Slovenia • Mon-Fri 2018-09-24 -- 2018-09-28

A workshop on Software tools for mathematics will be held 24-28 September 2018 in Koper, Slovenia.

The workshop will focus on the diversity of the mathematics software ecosystem, and on collaboration between the various systems and communities.

All are invited to participate, regardless of their initial skills in software: be it to start using mathematics software, to become more proficient users, to start developing, to meet other developers... We hope everyone will feel welcome and get the most out of this workshop while helping others get the most of it too.

As a Sage Days, the workshop will bear the number 97. It will not be only about Sage though -- more of a "GAP + !Sage + other-software days".

Dates and location

The workshop will start on Monday morning, 2018-09-24, and end on Friday evening, 2018-09-28.

We suggest participants plan to arrive on Sunday, 2018-09-23 (or before) and leave on Saturday, 2018-09-29 (or after).

There will be an install party on Sunday night for anyone interested.

Schedule

To be finalised, taking strong inspiration from the schedule for the "Software tools for mathematics" workshop in Morelia in January 2018.

We will start by two days of Software Carpentry training, covering the Unix shell, version control with Git, and programming with Python, delivered by Software Carpentry instructors.

The GAP mini-course on Wednesday will be led by Alexander Konovalov.

The remaining two days will be dedicated to other math-oriented research tools, such as SageMath and CoCalc (Samuel Lelièvre), LaTeX topics for the working mathematician (Nino Bašić) and contributed talks.

On Thursday afternoon there will be a problem session to give participants an opportunity to submit math problems whose solution might involve programming. There will also be time for discussion about math tools not covered in the workshop.

Participants

The list of participants will be at days97/participants. Stay tuned until we put registration in place.
