2023 MUG Meeting
2023 is the 50th Anniversary of McIDAS — Celebrate with us at the 2023 MUG Meeting!
After cancelling the 2021 MUG Meeting, this will be our first in-person meeting since 2019. The 2023 MUG Meeting will once again bring together McIDAS users from all around the globe to discuss topics relevant to McIDAS-X, McIDAS-V, and McIDAS-XCD, including guest speakers from the McIDAS community. There will be training sessions offered on McIDAS-X, McIDAS-V, and writing ADDE servers in Python. Registration and payment information are now available at the tabs above.
McIDAS-X and McIDAS-V User Workshops
Full-day sessions cover basic and advanced topics of McIDAS-X and McIDAS-V. Day One will start with the basics of accessing and displaying different types of data, as well as new features available in McIDAS-X and McIDAS-V. Day Two will cover Advanced Topics including advanced display types and python/jython tools available in McIDAS-X and McIDAS-V. Both Beginner and Advanced Users will benefit from these training sessions.
McIDAS Python Programmer Workshop
A two-day session that will cover writing a new McIDAS ADDE server using the McIDAS Python API, now called pyADDE. There are currently two pyADDE servers included in McIDAS-X for GOES ABI and MTG FCI. Participants in this workshop will learn to write a pyADDE server and will leave with the knowledge to write more of their own pyADDE servers. Ideally, participants in this workshop will have at least one year of Python programming experience.
The 2023 McIDAS Users’ Group Meeting will be held in room 332 and in room 310-312 for the training portion at the Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St, on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus from Sept 25th through 28th, 2023. Paid parking is available at the State Street Parking Garage (usually entering on the Lake Street side). Lunch can be found at the carts on Library Mall, at the Memorial Union and its Terrace, or down State Street. No food/leftovers can be brought into the Pyle Center; however, drinks are allowed.
