Before the Summer School
Before arriving at the Summer School, attendees will be expected to have a
knowledge of Mathematica at the level of Wolfram Education Group courses
M101 and M221. The Summer School
administration can assist attendees in
making arrangements to take these courses if necessary.
Each project proposal will be reviewed in
detail by Wolfram Research
staff, and amplifications and clarifications may be requested. Based on
proposal, a senior advisor will be assigned to each attendee.
By June 25, attendees should submit a final project proposal covering:
- The background and significance of the project (e.g., how does the
fit into the attendee's career, research, business, etc?)
- What has been done already on the project (e.g., is there an existing
of Mathematica material?)
- What specialized knowledge, models, data, environments, etc. are
needed for the project?
- What are the realistic objectives for the project during the Summer
- What are the ultimate objectives for the project?
Following the final proposal, Wolfram Research staff will work with
attendees to ensure that any special computer or connectivity arrangements
are in place for the proposed project.
- Attendees have an initial meeting with their senior advisor and mentor
to map out a strategy for the project.
- Attendees meet on a regular basis with their mentor to develop their
and monitor progress.
