The Open Science Grid is hosting a new summer school on High Throughput Computing in Madison, Wisconsin, July 19-22, 2010.
Students will learn to use high-throughput computing (HTC) systems–at their own campuses or using the national Open Science Grid–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, but any qualified and interested applicant will be considered. We are accepting applications now for students. 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 (TG’10, August 25 in Pittsburgh, PA) with all travel and conference expenses paid. This is a great opportunity!
