OSG Virtual Summer School

Monday, August 2, 2021 - Friday, August 13, 2021

This event will be held remotely.

If you could access hundreds or even thousands of computers for your scholarly work or the work you support, what could you do?  How could it transform research?  What discoveries might be made?

Summer School runs the weeks of August 2-6 and 9-13, 2021.
APPLY Today - Accepting Applications: May 7-2, 2021.

Participants will learn to use high throughput computing (HTC) to harness vast amounts of computing power for research, applicable to nearly any field of study.  In past Schools, we have helped people in physics, chemistry, engineering, life sciences, earth sciences, agricultural and animal sciences, economics, social sciences, medicine, and more.

Using lectures, demonstrations, hands-on exercises, and one-on-one consulting with OSG experts in HTC, participants will learn how HTC systems work, how to run and manage many jobs and huge datasets, how to implement a realistic scientific computing workflow, and most importantly, how to get your own research work up and running during the event.

Participation in the event is free, but a selective application process is required.

Ideal candidates are graduate students doing research and staff (e.g., facilitators, admins) supporting research that involves or could involve large-scale computing - work that cannot be done on one laptop or a handful of computers.  Also, we accept some post-doctoral students, faculty, research staff, and advanced undergraduates, so make a strong case for yourself regardless of your current role!
