Elmer/Ice courses - Material

Since 2008, a number of Elmer/Ice courses have been instructed. In this page, you will find the presentation and the material used during these courses. Because Elmer/Ice is evolving and some errors in the presentations have been found, it is recommended to start with the latest material.
