  Description This day-long workshop will be held on the Reed College campus in the Physics Department's Advanced Laboratory and will be of interest to professors seeking to include LabVIEW-based instruction in their instructional lab curricula. In advance of the workshop, each participant will be supplied with the book Hands-On Introduction to LabVIEW for Scientists and Engineers (Oxford University Press) and be asked to self-study selected chapters to learn the LabVIEW programming language (free trial versions of LabVIEW software can be downloaded from the National Instruments website). Then, during the workshop, participants will use their acquired programming skills on Reed?s LabVIEW systems (Windows machines equipped with National Instruments Multifunction Data Acquisition and GPIB boards) to build several computer-based instruments (including a digital oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, and digital thermometer) and to explore GPIB control of instrumentation. Reed College is located in Southeast Portland and is easily accessible from downtown hotels by public transportation.
