IWSGC’09 will examine the conceptual and practical underpinnings of today’s grids. Experts will provide practical exercises, discuss the challenges of building and sustaining e-Infrastructure, report its rapid influence on the way we research, design and make decisions. They will share their vision of the developments and challenges ahead. Comparable in commitment and scope with the famous International Summer School in Grid Computing (ISSGC), the International Winter School in Grid Computing provides a unique online educational opportunity.

To support the hands-on laboratory sessions, the GILDA grid will host widely used middleware. This testbed will provide a rich environment for hands-on learning and experimentation. Exercises and team work will encourage students to learn by using this testbed.

Selection for the Winter School is competitive based on the information supplied on the application form and by an applicant’s referee. We expect to accept between 25 and 30 students. We will be looking for students with commitment and enthusiasm for grid research and development. We will expect competence and experience in some aspects of software development, distributed systems, computational systems, data systems and Grid applications. We also welcome as participants educators who are planning to teach Grid computing.

The school will be conducted in English.
