We will be recruiting partner sites for the 2015 summer school courses. The following describes the requirements of a host site and please check back in early winter of 2015 for more information on our upcoming courses.
Each VSCSE course includes up to 20 satellite sites that partcipate in the course through high-definition video conferencing. These remote sites typically host 25 - 35 students, and are a way for the host institutions to quickly enhance their computational science and engineering capacity and community by making each course accessible to a number of people from the surrounding area. We also ask that local sites host some out-of-town students, providing a chance for students to network with people who have similar interests.
We ask that our partners provide people who can play each of the following roles to make sure each course is successful:
In addition to these roles, we ask that our partner sites:
We extend invitations to selected sites by early summer and selection is based upon geographic distribution, site capacity, past registration numbers, and size of local community. In addition, we will create a balance of new and returning sites and institutional diversity.
