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.

Themes, project

A tentative list of projects is at days97/projects.


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

We plan two days of 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.

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