GridKa School is a one-week summer school for grid and cloud computing. It is arranged by the Steinbuch Centre for Computing of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in close cooperation with the European Grid Initiative (EGI), the National Grid Initiative Germany (NGI-DE), the European Middleware Initiative (EMI), the HGF Alliance “Physics at the Terascale” and the German Grid Initiative (D-Grid) and will take place 6-10 September.

About half of the school consists of hands-on tutorials and workshops, giving participants the chance to gain actual expertise on different kinds of middleware, applications and techniques. Because these tutorials are offered in parallel tracks, GridKa School practicals cover topics well-suited for beginners, experienced users and grid administrators. The talks and presentations give an up-to-date overview on important and interesting grid and cloud computing subjects.

The program also includes a ‘get together’ 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. 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.
