10am - 5:30pm


Are you a PhD student at a GW4 institution?

Have you always wanted to learn to programme but don’t know where to start?

Do you need some bioinformatics skills for your project but don’t have any previous experience?

If this sounds like you then we have the perfect training opportunity to guide you in the right direction.
The University of Bath is organising a one-day training course on Monday 11th June to teach the basic skills in programming to PhD students from across the GW4 institutions. The course will comprise short lectures and hands on workshops from expert researchers who use these skills every day in their own work. The two main themes of the course will be;
> An introduction to the command line using basic and more advanced commands
> An introduction to programming and data analysis using Python
There will be plenty of help and advice available on the day where you can ask questions specific to your own research or seek clarification on topics you are finding more difficult to grasp. This is a one-off course so if you think it might be useful to you then don’t hesitate to sign up, spaces are limited. 
This course is offered as part of the GW4 doctoral training programme so it’s free to attend, travel to and from Bath will be reimbursed and catering will be provided on the day.
If there are no spaces left for your university please contact the organisers to be added to the waiting list. If for any reason you can no longer attend the course please let the organisers know as soon as possibe so your space can be offered to someone else.

Healthcare for the 21st Century: Using Analytics to improve the design and operation of healthcare systems
12:30pm - 2:30pm

IDO/CHi2 Research Seminar
12:30 Buffet Lunch
13:15 - 14.30 Talk
Please register for this event. 
Providing effective, affordable, and accessible healthcare is a key challenge of the 21st century. Healthcare costs have been steadily increasing but resources for providing healthcare are limited. At the same time, emerging new technologies and massive amounts of newly available data are changing the landscape of what is possible in healthcare provision. This talk describes how analytic and computational tools – and, more generally, an analytic way of thinking – can be used to support the design and management of effective and efficient healthcare systems. The Professor has worked with Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford which has had significant impact on improving patient care while reducing costs. This talk will cover projects in areas relating to hospital operations (operating room scheduling, capacity planning, supply management) and patient care (inpatient monitoring, triage, patient decision making). The talk will concluded with thoughts on challenges and opportunities for applying analytics to improve healthcare now and in the future.

• What we'll do: We will learn from the experts (by watching videos of others in action, critiquing and adapting their tricks etc) and stepping up to speak in front of each other.

• What to bring: Yourself and if you want to give a prepared speak, anything else you might need

• Important to know: This is an ideal environment to address your public speaking fears and simply practice speaking out loud about anything that floats your boat or you feel strongly about - think of it as a rehearsal space for your next (or first) speaking engagement or team presentation

Bath Improv.
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
7pm - 9pm

Hello there person reading this!

We've all been there on meetup - there's a new event that looks a bit out of our comfort zone, so we read the description, go 'that's a bit scary' or 'I'm not sure that's for me' - and leave it there.

Or maybe we sign up, but then let 'any excuse' mean we don't actually go? It's raining, I'm tired, that DVD box set won't watch itself?

But why not actually TRY it?

This is a class for all levels - some of us are beginners, while others have more experience, but everyone is welcome. It consists of games and scenes all improvised by the people that come along.

Sometimes it ends up a bit mad but other times you can be surprised by the theatre that comes out of nowhere. We start off every class with warm ups and progress depending upon how we all feel, and mostly just have a laugh with a few drinks.

There is no pressure to perform first time, so if you want to just watch, see what we are about and how the classes run that's fine too.

At the moment we have rotating hosts, so you get the benefit of different teaching styles and a mixture of exercises and games.

The classes run every MONDAY 7-9pm, at The St. James Wine Vaults (upstairs), which is just behind Royal Crescent.

There are a number of people who attend through Facebook rather than Meetup, so even if the numbers signed up on Meetup look low the class will still definitely be on, and we normally have around 7-12 people attending.

There is also plentiful free street parking on nearby Julian Road and Weston Road, or in the park.

Please note there is a voluntary £2 donation towards room costs, though your first time is FREE!

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
18th April - 13th June

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
