Applications are now open for the three-day Georgetown University Grid School course in large-scale and high-performance grid computing, which will take place 15-17 April 2008 at Georgetown University, Washington D.C.

The Open Science Grid Education team invite undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, educators and professionals in engineering, computer science, or any scientific, data- or compute-intensive discipline to apply.

Applicants should have at least intermediate programming skills (one to two semesters experience in C/C++, Java, Perl and/or Python) and hands-on experience with UNIX or Linux in a networked environment.

Successful applicants will learn more about grid and high throughput computing and its implications in various research areas through this intensive OSG course.

The workshop will focus on enabling the use of OSG and TeraGrid cyberinfrastructures to perform large-scale computations and data-intensive processing in different application domains. Participants will learn how to use grids of thousands of processors and will be able to continue to use these resources for their research after the course completion.

The workshop will cover:

  • An overview of distributed computing concepts and tools
  • Wide-area high speed optical networking
  • Concepts, tools, and techniques of grid computing
  • Discovering and using grid resources
  • Grid scheduling and distributed data management
  • Web service and grid service concepts
  • Techniques for workflow and collaboration
  • Grid site installation
