CHAIN (Co-ordination and Harmonisation of Advanced e-INfrastructures: http://www.chain-project.eu/), EU-IndiaGrid2 (Sustaining and enabling interoperability between Europe and India: http://www.euindiagrid.eu/) and EPIKH (Exchange Programme to advance e-Infrastructure Know-How: http://www.epikh.eu/) announce the Grid School for Application Porting to be held in Kolkata, India.

The Grid School aims at increasing the number of scientific/industrial applications running on the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 production infrastructure. A participant will learn how to port, deploy and run his application on the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 grid infrastructure. The School also aims at bringing new research groups to use the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 resources as well as to diversity the application domains and scientific communities. At the end of the school a participant will have its own application operational and running on the EU-IndiaGrid2 grid infrastructure.

Important deadlines:
  • Application submission: January, 18, 2011;
  • Notification of acceptance: January, 25, 2011;
  • Registration (only for accepted candidates): Between Junuary, 25, 2010 and February, 5, 2011.

  • The school is mostly intended, but not restricted, for CHAIN, EU-IndiaGrid2 and EPIKH members.

    To fulfill the goal of this Grid School, the program, based both on lectures and hands-on practices, will cover in-depth the main topics of Grid technology as well as the gLite middleware technicalities.

    Good previous knowledge about Linux, for Linux applications, or Windows, for Windows applications, is mandatory, and knowledge about the gLite middleware is highly desirable. Candidates are strongly encouraged to take a look on the training materials available at: https://grid.ct.infn.it/twiki/bin/view/GILDA/UserTutorials in order to gain confidence.

    To maximize the didactic impact and effectiveness, the number of applications to be ported will be limited to 8-10.

    All application candidatures must be submitted to the Selection Board of the School by a team of at most two persons before the 18th of January 2011. Each application team should fill the questionnaire available on the web at the URL describing the application they want to port on the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 e-Infrastructures. The Selection Board will rank both applications and persons. At most one application per team will be selected.

    Accepted candidates will be notified by the 20th of January 2010 and invited to fill the registration form to participate in the school. The form will be made available in this web page.
