School Program

Monday, July 31 (8:00 am – 6:00 pm)

On this day only participants will be split into a group who is just starting to use the Einstein Toolkit (Track 1) and those who are already regular users of the Einstein Toolkit (Track 2). There will be a parallel program for each of the two groups.
