OSG Summer School a success

Last month, Open Science Grid hosted its first summer school, and by all reports, it was a hit with both teachers and students.

“The OSG Summer School was a great experience,” said Vishagan Ratnaswamy, who will begin work on his doctorate in aeronautics this fall at Caltech. “I was able to learn more about the script files I was using as well as the systems I was running my simulations on.”

Before attending the summer school, Ratnaswamy was already an OSG user. But by attending, he said, he learned more about the available computational resources and the many ways in which grid computing can be applied to various types of research.

Ratnaswamy was one of 17 students chosen from a pool of 45 applicants to receive funding to attend the summer school, the TeraGrid ’10 conference, and next year’s OSG All-Hands Meeting.
