Before attempting this intermediate course, familiarity is required with the introductory course. If you are not it is recommended that you have some revision first, because many of the concepts contained in this course are quite advanced and depend on a thorough knowledge of the beginner's course.
At the end of this course you will be able to use Linux tools to automate job submission and post processing, as well as how to make optimal use of the MASSIVE system.
The course will be held at 10.00am - 3.00pm on Thursday 20th September 2012 at Monash University. Registration is required. Book quickly, as there are only twelve places available for this course!

The introduction to HPC and Linux at MASSIVE is designed to cater for a wide range of computer skill sets; we'll provide an introduction to MASSIVE itself, what hardware and software we have installed, how to use our helpdesk system, the Linux environment, secure file transfers, file editing and manipulation, environment modules, and the Portable Batch System (PBS).
At the end of this course you will be able to submit basic jobs to the MASSIVE HPC system.
The course will be held at 10.00am - 3.00pm on Wednesday 19th September 2012 at Monash University. Registration is required. Book quickly, as there are only twelve places available for this course!

Avizo (http://www.vsg3d.com/avizo/overview) is a tool for processing, analysing and visualising scientific data, and provides particular support for processing 3D data sets in materials science, geosciences, environmental and engineering applications.
MASSIVE has purchased a licence for Avizo which is being used through the MASSIVE Desktop by researchers in a wide range of fields including anatomy, palaeontology, engineering, materials science and science.
This workshop is an occasion for users of Avizo to share their experiences, as well as to introduce this software to other researchers who work with scientific 3D datasets.

This workshop will focus on data analysis and in particular on resonant Mie scattering (RMieS) correction. A RMieS correction algorithm based on extended multiplicative signal correction (EMSC) has been developed by Paul Bassan and Peter Gardner of Manchester University, UK and Achim Kohler of Nofima Mat, Norway in order to remove the baseline distortion in FTIR spectra, particularly in biological single cell spectra. This correction is now being increasingly used on spectra from both single cells and tissue sections. Paul Bassan will join the IR beamline team as workshop instructors.
