>
> Dear Students and Colleagues,
>
> We wish to bring to your attention an exciting two-day weekend  
> workshop in
> large-scale and high-performance grid computing.
>
> This intensive workshop introduces the techniques of grid and  
> distributed
> computing for science and engineering fields, with hands-on  
> training in the
> use of national grid computing resources.  The workshop introduces  
> essential
> skills that will be needed by researchers in the natural and applied
> sciences,
> engineering, and computer science to conduct and support large-scale
> computation and data analysis in emerging grid and distributed  
> computing
> environments.
>
> Workshop participants will work with some of the world's leading  
> experts in
> grid computing. The workshop will focus on enabling the use of the  
> national
> cyberinfrastructure - Open Science Grid and TeraGrid - to perform
> large-scale
> computations and data-intensive processing in the your field of  
> research.
> Participants will learn to use grids of thousands of processors and  
> will be
> able to continue to use these resources for their research after the
> workshop.
>
> The workshop will cover:
>
>     Overview of distributed computing concepts and tools
>     Wide-area high speed optical networking
>     Concepts, tools, and techniques of grid computing
>     Discovering and using grid resources
>     Grid scheduling and distributed data management
>     Web service and grid service concepts
>     Distributed data mining
>     Techniques for workflow and collaboration
>
> The school will take place at the University of Illinois at  
> Chicago, near
> downtown Chicago.
>
> Undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, educators and
> professionals
> in engineering, computer science, or any scientific, data- or
> computing-intensive discipline may apply.
>
> Applicants should have at least intermediate programming skills  
> (one to two
> semesters experience in C/C++, Java, Perl, and/or Python) and hands-on
> experience with UNIX / Linux in a networked environment.
>
> The deadline for application is March 2, 2006. Applicants will be  
> notified
> of
> acceptance by March 9, 2006.
