Running VM in TIARA Summer School

The codes that will be used in the lab sessions have been fully tested on the distributed pre-installed operating system (Linux CentOS 6.6) working inside a virtual machine platform (VirtualBox). Participants should download and install the virtual machine on their own laptops before the school starts. There is no technical support nor trouble shooting during the school as it will be extremely disruptive for the lecturers and other participants. It is strongly recommended that the installations of the most updated version should be done before the school for better learning experiences. Any installation issues before the school starts (July 13) should be directed to yhtseng   _replace_to_@_
