The date will be announced as soon as possible.

Introduction
Python is a very popular programming language for a wide variety of applications, in- and outside of research. It offers freedom, since it does not confine the user to one way of programming (e.g. procedural, object oriented, functional) and is user friendly, given its structured nature and the availability of many high quality libraries, such as Numpy/Scipy (fast nd-arrays and mathematics, graph plotting), Pandas (data analysis) and VTK integration (3D graphics, image processing). Many bridges to other programming languages are also available, such as C, R and Matlab. These factors greatly aid in quickly developing fast solutions.

Program Setup: Two Parts
This four day course is split in two parts. In the first part, the basic principles of object oriented programming in Python are discussed. The second part will focus on specific applications, such as statistics, signal processing, machine learning or general software development. The main direction of the second part will be choosen based on the background and preferences of the participants. The organizers therefore highly encourage interested individuals to contact the teacher about the intended application(s) of Python.

Teachers

This course will consist of both practical sessions and presentations. Afterwards, participants will have a good understanding of object oriented programming and how to do so in Python. Participants will also be able to use Python to overcome practical challenges. 

General information
Financial regulation of the Postgraduate School MolMed

From January 1st, 2017 the following financial rules apply, but they may differ per course still. Look at the course fee of each course to be sure which discounts are really applied:

Non-commercial course, symposium or workshop fee: €200/day, €750/week

• Participants of the postgraduate school MolMed: discount of 100%

• However, the Research Management course and the workshops Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign have to be paid from the ‘personal budget’ of employees, MolMed members and PhD students included. So they will receive an invoice from us which you have to pay and which will be reimbursed by your Department. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice

• PhD students and Master’s students, regardless of institution: discount of 50%.

  • The course fees of research master’s students will be paid by their master program at rate of €100/ECTS. For not I&I master students: please inform your master program in advance whether they agree to pay.
  • Master’s students who are paying the fee from their private budget: discount of 75%. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice.
  • However, 2 courses in statistics are paid centrally by the Dept. of Research policy for all PhD students from Erasmus MC! These are R and the SPSS course. So for Erasmus MC PhD students, these courses are always free, provided you are officially registered as a PhD student.

There is one fee for the entire course. There is no reduction for partial participation.

Some courses have less course days: SPSS 3 days, Survival Analysis 2 days, Management 2 days, Presenting 1,5 days and also other may be shorter as indicated on the website.

Commercial participants, companies & sponsors are invited to inquire about commercial tuition fees and about sponsoring.

All invoices will be sent by email to the mail address that you filled in upon registration. If this address is not correct we use your Erasmus MC address.

Those who register for a course, symposium or workshop agree with these financial conditions.
