Subject: OSG User School 2022: Learn to harness large-scale computing for research


Greetings HTCondor community!


If you or your users would like to learn more about running HTC workloads, especially on the Open Science Pool, please check out the following summer school opportunity hosted at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and spread the word to your colleagues who might benefit.




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 your research?  What discoveries might be made?


We are seeking applicants for the OSG User School 2022, from July 25-29, 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.  In previous

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, roleplays, and personal

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.


Want to learn more about HTC?  See, e.g., https://chtc.cs.wisc.edu/htc.html


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.  We also accept post-doctoral students, faculty, research

staff, and advanced undergraduates, so tell us about yourself regardless of

your current role!


We are planning a completely in-person event and will follow all COVID

guidelines that are in effect at that time.
