Registration is now open for the Learn yt Workshop at the University of
Illinois Urbana-Champaign, October 10-12, 2016. This workshop will
introduce attendees to the yt project (yt-project.org
), a python toolkit
for the analysis and visualization of volumetric data.
We have create a website for the workshop with more information:
In addition, if you wold like to register for the workshop, please fill out
this online form:
The workshop will cover basic usage of yt, including the yt data model,
yt's field system, low-level data inspection, basic visualization
workflows, and data analysis and reduction tasks. We will also cover more
advanced usages like generating simulated observations, halo finding and
halo analysis, volume rendering, advanced 3D visualizations, and advanced
data analysis and reduction tasks. Finally, we will cover how to modify and
extend yt, as well as the development and contribution process.
In addition, there will be time set aside for exploring data you bring to
the workshop, along with opportunities to work directly with yt developers
to load and explore your data.
The workshop will take place at the National Center for Supercomputing
Applications building on the north end of the UIUC campus. The NCSA
building is about a block away from the conference hotel and is next door
to a parking structure that offers metered all-day parking. There are a
number of food trucks nearby, a university-run cafeteria about 2 blocks
away, and a university business district with many good lunch restaurants
about a half a mile away.
We are planning to offer funding for hotel and travel for those requesting
support. If you request funding, you will be notified of available funds
by September 15. Travel awards will be made in the form of arranged
lodging and airfare, with reservations being made by the conference
We hope to see you there.
