[HTCondor-users] Fwd: OSG User School 2020: Learn to harness large-scale computing for research

Hi all,

Applications are still open for the Open Science Grid User School!
See notes about the deadline and applications below.



UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are extending the application
deadline to Friday, April 10. If you are unsure about applying, given all
the uncertainties lately, go ahead and submit an application! Even if this
yearâs School is postponed or canceled, the first choice of seats at the
next School that is offered will go to applicants selected this year.


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?

We are seeking applicants for the Open Science Grid (OSG) User School
2020, which takes place July 6-10 at the beautiful University of
Wisconsin in Madison. 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 (e.g., physics, chemistry,
engineering, life sciences, earth sciences, agricultural and animal
sciences, economics, social sciences, medicine, and more).

For more background: https://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/htc.html

Using lectures, discussions, roleplays, and lots of hands-on work 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 where to turn for help and more info.

Worried about costs? We pay all basic travel, hotel, and food costs for
applicants who are selected to attend. This is a valuable offer!

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!


  Application Period (OPEN NOW): 1â31 March 2020
  OSG User School: 6-10 July 2020
