Registration& Requirements

  • Registration Page
  • Participant's List
  • All attendees are required to bring their own laptop to the workshop to use a virtual machine with the Hall A/C software.
    • It must have enough memory (? GB RAM) and free hard disk space (? GB) to run a virtual machine, which will be distributed at the workshop.
    • It must have VirtualBox installed (v? or later): Download VirtualBox
  • To obtain the virtual machine image (? GB), download it from...

Purpose

  • The purpose of the Summer 2017 Analysis workshop is to provide a setting in which users will have an opportunity to learn the details of the Hall A & C Analyzers
  • These talks, tutorials, and hands-on sessions will be catered towards graduate students to help familiarize them with doing physics analyses with Jefferson Lab experimental data
  • The sessions will be interleaved with Hall A, therefore they will be as generalized as possible
  • All sessions will be recorded on BlueJeans and posted to the wiki page of future reference
  • Each session will contain exercises that will also serve as homework
