Workshop Organization

This is a laptop only workshop. Each participant is required to come with his/her laptop computer with MATLAB version 7.5 (R2007b) or above installed. We will provide WiFi access, but participants shouldn’t rely on it to access a MATLAB license server at their own institution. As an alternative to MATLAB, it is possible to use GNU Octave 4.2 (free software, compatible with MATLAB syntax).
