COMPUTE organizes two annual events, the Winter meeting and the Summer retreat. The Winter meeting is a workshop in Lund with presentations under a common theme and is open to anyone. The Summer retreat is for COMPUTE members, PhD students, partners, and supervisors, and invited lecturers and focuses on skills development, usually at a location outside of Lund, but not always.
COMPUTE also organizes other workshops, sometimes in collaboration with partner organizations, and lunch mingles for networking and exchanging experiences. In addition, we host peer learning groups and provide materials for self-learning.
Please check the COMPUTE calendar regularly!
The 2023 COMPUTE summer retreat will happen on the 23rd October. The event will be focussed on Career Advice and targets PhD students as well as researchers.
The event will start in the morning and will conclude with a poster session in the early evening. We have booked Palaestra et Odeum in central Lund for the event. All welcome.
COMPUTE lunch mingles are a chance to connect with fellow COMPUTE students and researchers in an informal setting and discuss topics related to your research as well as soft skills, career development and organizational topics. Each mingle has a main topic, announced on the respective COMPUTE calendar page, but participants can also chat freely about other things that interest them.
Peer-learning groups are for people who want to acquire a certain skill on their own and connect with others who do the same.
We are currently conducting a survey for peer-learning group topics. The COMPUTE team will go through the suggestion and will put members with matching interest into contact and assist in the setup of the group. The survey is active until the end of March 2023.
Currently, we have the following peer-learning groups:
- Python for Beginners (GitHub)
- AI for Medicine and Life Science journal club (GitHub)
- AI for image and video data
If you want to join or have ideas for additional peer-learning groups, please read the websites for each group and get in touch.
Some of the COMPUTE courses and peer learning groups have released material for self-studies.
AI in Medicine and Life Sciences – AI for image and video data
Reproducible and Interactive Data Analysis and Modelling using Jupyter Notebooks
Solving PDEs with DUNE-FEM
