Technical information 2020

The school will include data analysis of pre-collected patterns using different techniques and different programs / software suites, all of them generally available to the public for free. The one exception – TOPAS – is a commercial program, whose license is costly, but a free temporary license will be available for the attendees during – and limited to – the school.
 
The attendees should bring their own laptops in order to fully profit from the practical data analysis sessions. We strongly advise you to try to install the programs whose demos you are interested to follow in advance!! Limited support will be offered during the school if you need support. Please ensure that you have administrator’s rights and passwords for the laptop as many installers require it.
 
Not all programs run on all platforms (MacOSX, Linux, Windows) and so you may be limited in your choice by the computer you bring with you.
 
The following programs will be demonstrated:
