A requirement for all courses will be to have a laptop either running Mac OS X, Linux, or Windows with PuTTY and PSCP pre-installed: (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html)
This must also be able to wirelessly connect to ANU Secure or Eduroam. If you have questions about this, please contact Bob Buckley or Cameron Jack (details below) to discuss.
There are limited places available. These placements will be operating on a first response first serve basis. To attend, please contact both Stephanie Palmer and Cameron Jack (Stephanie.Palmer@anu.edu.au and Cameron.Jack@anu.edu.au) indicating which course(s) you wish to attend and whether you are an honours student, post-graduate student, academic or professional staff.
If you are in a category that requires payment (see attached in course information), your PI will need to send a confirmation e-mail with an appropriate budget code.
