Who should attend?

Any researcher seeking to exploit container technology to make their computational analyses easier, more reproducible, and more accessible for Open Science. Must enjoy a collaborative, innovative environment. Preference is given to NSF BIO-funded PIs and early career researchers.


What will I learn?

  • Understand what containers are and their role in reproducible science
  • Find and deploy existing containers using CyVerse VICE (Visual Interactive Compute Environment)
  • Learn to create Docker containers using your own data and/or analyses for reproducible analysis
  • Understand the role of the Dockerfile in the build
  • Learn to apply Linux command line skills to write Docker files


What's new this year?

  • More hands-on time for your project (be sure to bring your own data!)​​
  • Using containers interactively (using containers in CyVerse's Visual Interactive Computing Environment)
