Applications to attend the 6th International Summer School on Grid Computing, to be held in Balatonfüred, Hungary, from 6-18 July 2008, are due by 5 May 2008.

The ISSGC’08 program will include lectures, discussions, laboratory sessions, tutorials and group work delivered by leading authorities in the fields of advanced grid technology, applications of e-Science and distributed systems research. Reports from world leaders in deploying and exploiting grids will complement lectures from research leaders shaping future e-infrastructure.

Hands-on laboratory exercises will give students experience with widely used grid middleware. The school will conclude with an integrating practical that will enable students, working in teams, to bring together all they have learnt. During the school, participants will meet like-minded students from many parts of the world, working in many disciplines, and form valuable long-term working relationships.

Who should apply?

Applications are invited from the target audience: enthusiastic and ambitious researchers who have recently started or are about to start working on grid projects. Students may come from any country and from fields including computer science, computational science and any application discipline. The school will assume that students have diverse backgrounds, however, in order to fully participate in the practical exercises applicants should be confident programmers who have fulfilled certain prerequisite exercises.
