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 the 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 project fit into the attendee's career, research, business, etc?)
  • What has been done already on the project (e.g., is there an existing body 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 School?
  • 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.

Week One
  • 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 project and monitor progress.
  • Each day there is a mixture of lectures and hands-on workshops covering Mathematica techniques and accompanying Wolfram technologies.
  • Summer School areas are open throughout the day and evening for individual or assisted project work. Teaching assistants are on hand.

Week Two
  • Attendees have an additional meeting with their senior advisor to analyze progress.
  • Attendees meet on a regular basis with their mentor to complete their project and prepare the final presentation.
  • Each day there are lectures on special topics, as well as optional workshops.
  • Summer School areas continue to be open throughout the day and evening.

End of Week Two
  • The final project presentations are given.
