Register now for the 7th International Summer School on Grid Computing (ISSGC 09), to be held at Sophia Antipolis, in Nice, on the Cote d'Azur, France.

The aim of the school is to provide students with an understanding of the e-infrastructures required to integrate, develop and maintain grid applications. 

Hands-on laboratory  sessions will cover widely used middleware produced by projects in the USA, Europe and Asia. 

Graduates of the school will:

*Understand how to access and use globally important infrastructures and resources (computational or data)

*Have a familiarity with the concepts needed to develop applications for these resources and infrastructures

*Gain experience in developing example applications

*Become familiar with the range of infrastructures and resources

*Be aware of the emerging standards and developments in distributed and high-performance computing.

Applications are invited from researchers who have recently started (or are about to start) working on grid projects. The target audience will include enthusiastic and ambitious young researchers who expect to use or develop grids in their research. 

We typically receive more applications that places available; selection for the school is therefore competitive and based upon the information supplied on the application form and by the applicant's referee. We expect to receive between 60 and 70 students. 

The program includes the use of at least six grid and web service technologies. This allows students to make comparisons and see different approaches to common challenges in distributed computing. The school will conclude with an integrating practical that will enable students, working in teams, to bring together all they have learnt via an extended exercise that simulates collaborative research using e-Infrastructures.

However, it means that the school doesn't set out to generate experts in a specific grid technology. Similarly, the school concentrates on the architectural approach of these systems and does not have opportunity to discuss underpinning technologies, such as digital networks, nor to examine other approaches to distributed systems.

The participants, students and staff, will meet like minded people from many parts of the world and form long-term working relationships. We therefore believe that it is important that all the participants enjoy the summer school and make good use of the breaks, leisure opportunities and social program.

The summer school will be conducted in English, so participantes are expected to be comfortable using spoken English.
