OPEN SCIENCE GRID USER SCHOOL 2017!

ANNOUNCING THE OPEN SCIENCE GRID USER SCHOOL 2017!

If you could access hundreds or even thousands of computers for your scholarly work, what could you do? How could it transform your work? What discoveries might you make?

We are seeking applicants for the Open Science Grid (OSG) User School 2017, which takes place July 17-21 at the beautiful University of Wisconsin in Madison. Participants will learn to use high throughput computing (HTC) to harness vast amounts of computing power for research, applicable to nearly any field of study (e.g., physics, chemistry, engineering, life sciences, earth sciences, agricultural and animal sciences, economics, social sciences, medicine, and more).

Using lectures, discussions, roleplays, and lots of hands-on work with OSG experts in HTC, participants will learn how HTC systems work, how to run and manage many jobs and huge datasets, how to implement a realistic scientific computing workflow, and where to turn for help and more info.

Worried about costs? We pay all basic travel, hotel, and food costs for applicants who are selected to attend. This is a valuable offer! Ideal candidates are graduate students whose research involves or could involve large-scale computing – work that cannot be done on one laptop or a handful of computers. Also, we accept some post-doctoral students, faculty, staff, and advanced undergraduates, so make a strong case for yourself regardless of your current role!

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Application Period (OPEN NOW): 1 March – 14 April 2017
  • OSG User School: 17-21 July 2017
