Joint European DCI Summer School to issue Call for Participation

14 Apr 2011 Budapest - The EDGI project team will organize a joint DCI Summer School with EMI, IGE, EGI-Inspire, StratusLab and DEGISCO in Budapest between 11-16 July 2011. The subject of the summer school is to give insights to the technologies provided by the EMI, IGE, EDGI and StratusLab projects. Based on the EGI-InSPIRE and DEGISCO project experiences the school will also address the issues of how to organize production infrastructures based on these technologies, how to port applications for such infrastructures and how to support users of these infrastructures.

The Distributed Computing Infrastructure (DCI) projects (EGI-InSPIRE, European Middleware Initiative (EMI), Initiative for Globus in Europe (IGE), European Desktop Grid Initiative (EDGI), StratusLab and VENUS-C), funded under the e-Infrastructures topic of the FP7 "Capacities" Specific Programme, will provide a pan-European production infrastructure built from federated distributed resources, ensure the continued support, maintenance and development of the middlewares that are in common use in Europe, explore how Grid sites and different applications can be hosted sustainably in commercial, public, publicly procured and private 'Cloud computing' environments, and provide desktop resources to the European research community.

The the summer school will be addressed to:

  • PhD students and technical staff members who are interested in learning the Grid middleware, desktop Grid and Cloud technologies.
  • Applications developers who develop distributed applications based on these DCI technologies and infrastructures.
  • System administrators who would like to be familiar with the latest achievements of Grid developments represented by these DCI projects.
  • Staff members of companies who would like to establish a Grid (Distributed Computing) Infrastructure or would like to extend their existing infrastructure with Grids/Clouds.
  • Anybody, who is interested in getting an overview about European Grid technologies and latest developments.
