Open Science Grid Summer School 2011
June 26-30 2011
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Learn high throughput computing for your science or engineering research
To apply: http://www.opensciencegrid.org/GridSchool
Due date: Friday, April 1, 2011
You are invited to apply now for the 2011 OSG Summer School, where you can learn to harness the power of distributed computing while spending a week at the beautiful University of Wisconsin-Madison.
During the school, you will learn to use high-throughput computing (HTC) systems -- at your own campus or using the national Open Science Grid (OSG) -- to run large-scale computing applications that are at the heart of today's cutting-edge science.
Through lectures, discussions, and lots of hands-on activities with experienced OSG staff, you will learn how HTC systems work, how to run and manage lots of jobs and huge datasets to implement a scientific computing workflow, and where to turn for more information and help.
The school is ideal for graduate students in computer science or other sciences where large-scale computing is a vital part of the research process, although there are a few slots for other applicants.
In the past, we've had students from diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to:
- Geographic information systems
- Computer Science
Successful applicants will have all travel and school expenses paid for by the OSG. Furthermore, as part of a collaboration with TeraGrid, students will go to the annual TeraGrid Conference (TG11, July 18-21, 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah) with all travel and conference expenses paid.
- Applications Open: Now
- Applications Close: Friday, April 1, 2011
- School Session: June 26-30, 2011
