Bob Freeman PhD, Director of Research Technology Operations at RCS, and a member of the Harvard Research Computing Council, will be giving a talk at the Harvard Technology ABCD meeting held on May 4th from 12pm - 2pm to discuss how research computing is changing at HBS, and examples of research that have benefited from RCS assistance.

Please see this exciting opportunity from the Center for Geographic Analysis below:
Twice a year the Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA) offers a two-week program of intensive training in geographic information systems (GIS). The program is designed for Harvard graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty who want to learn spatial analysis and apply GIS methods in their research. No previous GIS training required. See GIS Institute for more information.
If you are a Stata user, you might have recently received an advisory regarding the "-xtreg, fe-" command. Stata staff are currently working on fixing the error in the manual. Please see this page for more details: http://grid.rcs.hbs.org/news/stata-advisory-corrected
We'd like to announce that RCS will start to utilize Saba, or the Harvard Training Portal. This change is due to Saba's ease of self-registration, the ability to consolidate all research computing training across the university, and the convenience of tracking the history of previous courses.
The Portal also features trainings from the Center for Workforce Development, Lynda.com, and the IT Academy. Please note that the Portal is only accessible to current members of the Harvard community.
