The course GRID and e-Science will be held at the Instituto de Fisica Corpuscular (IFIC) in Valencia, on 6-9 July. This is the 7th edition of the course, organized by the Institute of Physics Cantabria (IFCA) and IFIC.

The course is aimed at students and researchers who want to run applications on GRID-CSIC.

Its objectives are to disseminate the latest advances in distributed computing, grid and cloud computing, in terms of projects, infrastructure and technologies. It is aimed to give students the basic skills to use the grid, its tools and advanced applications. The various components will be discussed in detail, including user-level middleware, and sample applications, and use of grid infrastructure at international level and in production environments.

Emphasis will be placed upon use in real environments — which gives real-life examples of the tools in action, frequent errors and possible solutions. This is a practical course, in which theoretical sessions are followed by practice.


  • Computing Infrastructure GRID-CSIC
  • International projects distributed computing infrastructure (EGI)
  • National Initiative for E-Science
  • Distribution of gLite Middleware
  • PKI-Based Security
  • Job Management
  • Data Management
  • Monitoring
  • Use Cases and Application porting
  • Practices


Researchers wishing to run their applications on the GRID-CSIC, and distributed computing environments. Engineers, recent graduates and final-year students interested in distributed and grid computing are welcome.


The course is international, so it will be given in English in response to students who do not understand Spanish. During the practice sessions, the questions and answers will be given in both English and Spanish.
