Writing Fast(er) Code in Python Workshop

We are pleased to announce a three-day course to give a hands-on introduction to write fast(er) code in Python.

Because of the COVID-19 safety regulations at ETH Zurich this course edition is being held entirely online on Zoom at the following days and times:

  • Tuesday 23rd of November, 9:15 until 16:30
  • Thursday 25th of November, 9:15 until 16:30
  • Tuesday 30th of November, 9:15 until 16:30

The course requires some previous Python experience and will be suited for you if you can answer the following quesions with "yes":

  • Do you program in Python for more than a year?
  • Have you ever experienced performance issues in your Python code?
  • Are you interested in how to run Python code on the Euler high-performance-cluster of ETH?

The course will give you an introduction into different techniques and tools which help you to tackle performance issues when writing Python code either on your local computer and/or on a high-performance computing cluster.

This course is not an introduction to Python and does not offer a deep-dive into the presented topics. Instead, we try to raise awareness of existing solutions and to teach best-practices so that participants can acquire the basic skills needed to tackle performance related programming problems on their own.

Pre-announcement: Open Science Call

EPFL, together with ETHZ, EMPA, PSI, EAWAG and WSL, have jointly allocated up to CHF10 million until 2024 to launch an open research data (ORD) funding scheme. This is part of a broader scheme supporting ORD.

The overall goal of the program is to promote ORD practices in the ETH domain and stimulate a wider implementation of good ORD practices.

The scheme is intended to support researchers in developing and mainstreaming ORD practices irrespective of the community and type of data (big or small data, source code, hardware, protocols, wet-ware, training material, etc.). For this call, ORD will be interpreted very broadly, with all research results that can be made broadly available counting as "Data". Proposals with a single PIs and consortiums across ETH Domain institutions will be allowed.

Further details will be provided in the call for proposals that will be published in November 2021. This pre-announcement is made in order for potential applicants to explore project ideas as well as collaboration opportunities with researchers in other institutions. You should be prepared for a short submission deadline.

Research Data Management Workshop Series

Scientists nowadays collect ever larger amounts of data that have to be stored, interpreted and shared.

Furthermore, new guidelines and policies regarding data management are regularly issued by funding agencies, journals or academic institutions. As a result, successful research data management has become both a key skill and a major challenge for many scientists.

In collaboration with ETH Library, we conduct six consecutive workshops focusing on the various elements of research data management and the research data life cycle.
