sixth in the highly successful series of International Summer Schools
on Grid Computing will be held at the Hotel Füred Conference and
Congress Centre of Balatonfüred, Hungary, from 6th to 18th July 2008.
School will include lectures, discussions, laboratory sessions,
tutorials and group work delivered by leading authorities in the fields
of advanced grid technology, applications of e-Science and distributed
systems research. Reports from world leaders in deploying and
exploiting Grids will complement lectures from research leaders shaping
laboratory exercises will give students experience with widely used
Grid middleware. The school will conclude with an integrating practical
that will enable students, working in teams, to bring together all they
have learnt on an extended exercise that simulates collaborative
research using e-Infrastructures. Indeed during the school,
participants will meet like-minded students from many parts of the
world, working in many disciplines, and form valuable long-term working
invite applications from enthusiastic and ambitious researchers who
have recently started or are about to start working on Grid projects.
Students may come from any country. We expect participants from
computer science, computational science and any application discipline.
The School will assume that students have diverse backgrounds and build
on that diversity. However, in order to fully participate in the
practical exercises you should be a confident programmer who will have
fulfilled certain prerequisites.
