ANNOUNCING THE 2012 OPEN SCIENCE GRID USER SCHOOL
Open Science Grid User School
June 25-28, 2012
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Applications Due: March 30, 2012
If you could access thousands, maybe millions, of hours of computing, how would it transform your research? What discoveries would you make?
We are looking for qualified students to attend the 2012 Open Science Grid (OSG) User School, where they will learn how to use high-throughput computing (HTC) to harness vast amounts of computing power for research.
Using lectures, discussions, and lots of hands-on work with experts in high-throughput computing, students will learn how HTC systems work, how to run and manage jobs and huge datasets to implement a full scientific computing workflow, and where to turn for help and more info.
Worried about costs? Successful applicants will get financial support to attend the OSG School (June 25-28) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the XSEDE12 Conference in Chicago (July 16-20).
Ideal candidates are science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduate students whose research demands large-scale computing. Advanced undergraduates are encouraged to apply.
Application Period: March 5-30
OSG User School: June 25-28
XSEDE12 Conference: July 16-20
