IMPORTANT: All ESRs will be meet in the lobby of the Premier Inn at 08:30 and head over to the Science Centre in taxis together. At the end of the day, everyone will head over to the TIC to register and receive their security pass for the week. You need these passes to enter the CCDS lab where the workshop will be held.
An interactive ‘Meet the Expert’ session at Glasgow Science Centre which runs from 10:00-15:00 and includes a series of table-top demonstrations to introduce Uncertainty Treatment and Optimisation to a broad audience in a fun and accessible way. The ESRs will meet with both school groups and families on what is expected to be a busy day for the museum.
Tues 20 February: Optimisation
08:00 – 18:00, CCDS
Practical exercises, completed individually and in small groups, focused on implementing the knowledge learned during the Opening Training School on optimisation.
Wed 21 February: Uncertainty Quantification
Practical exercises, completed individually and in small groups, focused on implementing the knowledge learned during the Opening Training School on uncertainty quantification.
Thurs 22 February: Complementary Skills
A full day workshop focusing on effective team-building and collaboration tools. This course is designed to facilitate the project working groups, where groups of ESRs will be required to work in self-managed teams on real-world projects for 6 months.
Fri 23 February: Project Working Groups
The last day is dedicated to starting the project working groups. These project groups, comprising 3-5 ESRs, are a key form of interaction between the ESRs themselves and various domain experts, both within and outwith their specific area of research. The first set of projects will run for 6 months, with a final design review held at the LTW-II in Durham in July 2018.
The project topics have been developed by the supervisors and experts within the network and will be presented during the week.
