Announcement - Florida International Grid School, 23-25 January, Miami, U.S.
The intensive course will introduce the techniques of grid and distributed computing for science and engineering fields, with hands-on training in the use of large-scale grid computing resources.
The course introduces skills needed to conduct and support large-scale computation and data analysis in emerging grid and distributed computing environments.
Undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, educators and professionals in engineering, computer science, or any scientific, data-or computing-intensive discipline may apply.
Applicants should have at least intermediate programming skills (one to two semesters experience in C/C++, Java, Perl and/or Python) and hands-on experience with UNIX or Linux in a networked environment.
The workshop will focus on enabling the use of the Open Science Grid and TeraGrid cyberinfrastructures to perform large-scale computations and data-intensive processing in various research fields.
