Madagascar provides a complete environment for organizing one's research, from new software development to running computational experiments to publishing the experimental results in papers and reports, archiving them for future usage, and sharing them with colleagues and sponsors. Madagascar school has been organized many times around the word. It provides a platform for Madagascar users to learn and communicate with the developers. This Madagascar school will introduce the advanced usages for the users with fundamental knowledge of Madagascar. Besides the lecture section, this school will also features a discussion section, in which the participants are welcome to share the research experiences using Madagascar. This Madagascar school is convened by Prof. Sergey Fomel from the University of Texas at Austion and hosted by Prof. Qizhen Du from China University of Petroleum.
