[HTCondor-users] OSG Virtual School 2021: Learn to harness large-scale computing for research

Hello HTCondor community,

If you, or members of your organization, would benefit from hands-on experience in using the Open Science Grid or distributed high throughput computing generally, consider applying for this year's OSG Virtual School. For more details about the OSG, the virtual school, and how to apply, see the below announcement.

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 OSG Virtual School 2021, which will take
place the weeks of August 2-6 and 9-13. As the name indicates, the School
will be all virtual again this year.


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.

For more background: https://chtc.cs.wisc.edu/

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

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): 7-28 May 2021
ÂOSG Virtual School: 2-13 August 2021
