Students are expected to bring a laptop computer for the analysis workshop. Since the course is primarily focused on data analysis, it is important that students have a working computer suitable for analysis. To be specific, you should bring a laptop with the following characteristics:

  • Either Windows 2000 or XP (not Windows98 or Me), Mac OS 10.3 or 10.4, or Linux. If your computer does not use English as it's default language, there may be problems running the software.
  • 256 Mb of RAM
  • Ifeffit 1.2.9 installed (and tested, please!).
  • Your data and any relevant analysis projects you might have.
  • A power supply!

If you do not have access to such a computer that you can bring with you, contact us.

If you have a wireless card on your computer, you will be able to use an APS wireless network, but we won't be providing ethernet support.
