ANNOUNCING THE 2014 OPEN SCIENCE GRID USER SCHOOL!
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 2014 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, roleplays, and lots of hands-on work
with OSG experts in high throughput computing, students will learn
how HTC systems work, how to run and manage many 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 (July 7-10) at the beautiful
University of Wisconsin in Madison.
Ideal candidates are science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM) graduate students whose research demands
Also, we will consider applications from faculty, staff, and
advanced undergraduates, so make a good case for yourself!
Application Period: Mon March 10 - Fri April 4 2014
OSG User School: Mon July 7 - Thu July 10 2014
