SIMD training event - June 2014
The SIMD team will be providing an afternoon training session in Edinburgh on the 23rd of June 2014.
This session will provide training in the following areas:
- What is SIMD - how we create it and what data we use
- Using SIMD - where to get some ready-made analysis and suit it to your needs
- Planning your own research - taking SIMD and supplementing it with other data sources.
This training event is open to all but specifically designed for users who have little or no experience in SIMD or would like to learn how to use it more effectively in their work. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers at the end of the event.
If you are interested in coming to the event and would like further details please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
