"The Open Science Grid (OSG) User School is now accepting applications for the 2017 session!
The school runs July 17-21 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Participants “… will learn to use high-throughput computing (HTC) systems — at your own campus or using the national Open Science Grid (OSG) — to run large-scale computing applications that are at the heart of today’s cutting-edge science. Through lectures, discussions, and lots of hands-on activities with experienced OSG staff, you will learn how HTC systems work, how to run and manage lots of jobs and huge datasets to implement a scientific computing workflow, and where to turn for more information and help. Take a look at the high-level curriculum and syllabus for more details.”
Application deadline is Friday, April 7, 2017 by the end of the day. The school is geared toward graduate students, but will consider applications from advanced undergraduates, post-doctoral students, faculty, and staff. Accepted students will receive financial support for the cost of basic travel and local costs.
You can learn more about the school, see application details, and contact information on the OSG User School page."
