Announcing the 2014 Open Science Grid User School!

OSG User School posterIf 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 large-scale computing. Also, we will consider applications from faculty, staff, and advanced undergraduates, so make a good case for yourself!

 

IMPORTANT DATES

Application Period: March 10 – April 4
OSG User School: July 7-10
