User Groups

PrincetonPy (Python User Group)

The Princeton University Python Community is an interdisciplinary community of Python enthusiasts of all levels, based at Princeton University. It aims to support and help Princeton University community (Students, Researchers and Staff) in getting started or improve their utilization of Python. Since 2014, the community had created introductory classes to Python as well as more advanced classes for any members of the community. The group meets  for tutorials, demos, and help sessions. PrincetonPy was founded as an initiative by Quentin Caudron and Paul Gauthier in December 2013. 

The meetings are held in the Visualization Lab within the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering, in 347 Lewis Science Library. For a list of upcoming talks and tutorials, check out the Google Group page here

If you would like to lead a session, we’d love to hear from you ! Contact us at We encourage open code, and so we keep all code from previous sessions on our Github repository

The Princeton University Python Community's events are funded by the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering.


TensorFlow and PyTorch User Group

The purpose of TF & PT UG is to provide a campus-wide platform for deep learning researchers to present their work, stay up to date on recent developments related to the tools, and to get help with coding and running jobs. The group is open to all members of the PU research community including undergraduate students.

The kickoff meeting of the TensorFlow & PyTorch User Group (TFPT) will take place on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at 4:30-5:30 pm in Lewis Library 138. Light refreshments will be served. Given that the group is new, many details about its operation will be determined by those who attend the first few monthly meetings. Feel free to email the organizers with your thoughts if you cannot attend.

MATLAB User Group

The MATLAB Users Group provides opportunities for campus MATLAB users to learn more about using MATLAB, help each other, and learn more about research and teaching being done at Princeton using MATLAB. The group sponsors presentations by Princeton MATLAB users and by MATLAB representatives.
