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: A
First Course in Mathematica"
Introduction to Programming in Mathematica." The Summer
School administration can help attendees arrange to take
these courses if necessary.
Wolfram Research staff will work with accepted attendees to ensure that
any special computer or connectivity
arrangements are in place for the proposed project.
