Computer configuration instructions (ignore if not bringing a laptop computer to the workshop):Downloading the MAGICTool and SAM software More information about SAM
Note: manuals for both MAGICTool and SAM will be provided in the workshop binder. It will definitely be helpful if you have at least registered with SAM as a user; that avoids the Stanford-induced delay of getting assigned as a user; see either set of directions above to find out how to register.
The information below is in case you want to try to configure your computer to connect to the Georgetown University system before you arrive: Configuration for Georgetown connection
