Established in 2003, the International GridKa School is one of the leading summer schools for grid computing and e-science. This year's event is scheduled for 6-10 September in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The school cooperates with the Helmholtz Alliance 'Physics on the Terascale'. In addition, it is associated with EGI/NGI. GridKa School offers a broad range of topics, which are chosen from the realm of these projects and beyond.

Because of its parallel hands-on sessions, GridKa School targets different groups of people involved in grid computing:

  • grid novices, advanced users and administrators,
  • scientists and other users of grid,
  • graduate students, PhD students and post-docs involved in grid computing.

The advanced talks and presentations give an up-to-date overview on important and interesting grid and cloud computing subjects. About half of the school consists of hands-on tutorials and workshops, giving participants the opportunity to gain actual expertise with different kinds of middleware, applications and techniques; the preliminary schedule is available online.

The program is completed by a social event (including a guided tour of the German WLCG Tier-1 center 'GridKa'), a school dinner and a grid security workshop; the latter is targeted at administrators.

Applicants from all scientific and industry disciplines are welcome to register online at Before 31 July, registrants can take advantage of an early bird discount. The organizing team reserves the right to limit the number of participants if necessary.
