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.
ANNOUNCING THE OSG USER SCHOOL 2022!
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.
* Application Period (OPEN NOW): 18 March - 18 April 2022
* OSG User School: 25-29 July 2022
