I'm pleased to announce another run of our Mantid training sessions. Places are limited to 13 per course and have previously booked out quickly, so please book your places early.

Wednesday 8th January 1-5pm: Mantid Introduction
An introduction to the Mantid interface, how to graph and visualize your data, manipulate it with the built in algorithms, together with an introduction to curve fitting and live data analysis.

Thursday 9th January 9-12am: Introduction to Python
This half day course will introduce you to the Python scripting language, no previous experience required, although some understanding of loops and conditional if statements will be expected.

Thursday 9th January 1-5pm: Python in Mantid
This course concentrates on using Python to build analysis scripts within Mantid as well as controlling the Mantid GUI from python, and accessing the underlying data within Mantid workspaces.

Friday 10th January 9-5pm: Extending Mantid using Python
For the more adventurous among you this course will introduce you to the many ways you can use Python to extend the capabilities within Mantid adding Python Algorithms and curve fitting functions, as well as diving deeper into the structure of workspaces.
After the feedback from the previous run this course has been extended to a full day course, together with adding more material.

Booking a place:
If you are interested in any other these courses please send an email to nick.draper at stfc.ac.uk<mailto:nick.draper at stfc.ac.uk> letting me know which ones you wish to attend. For the courses we will supply PCs, so there is no need to bring a laptop unless you really want to. Spaces are limited to 13 people per course so please book early to avoid disappointment. If a course is over booked we will arrange another session in the future, so if you cannot make that specific date let me know and I'll let you know about any subsequent courses.
I'll send out calendar appointments to you once your place on the course is booked.

For visitors from UK Academic Institutions:
We may be able to offer assistance with travel and lodging costs while attending the courses.  Let me know when you are booking the courses and I'll get back to you with details.

For visitors from elsewhere:
While we can offer this course for free, we cannot unfortunately offer any help with travel or subsistence costs. However please let me know that you will be visiting when you reply so that I can arrange site access.
