We are proud to announce the 16th version of the GridKa School 2018 – Computing and Science Fair. We warmly welcome and invite everyone to train their skills for the EOSC by attending the GridKa School from August 27th to 31st in Karlsruhe.
The international GridKa School is one of Europe's leading summer schools for advanced computing techniques. The school provides a forum for scientists and technology leaders, experts and novices to facilitate knowledge sharing and information exchange.
The target audience ranges from beginners to advanced users and administrators of computing and data science technologies, as well as graduate and PhD students from a broad range of domains. The GridKa School is organised by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and hosted by the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC).
This year, the GridKa School is organised in close collaboration with EOSCpilot WP7 Skills. Aiming to provide relevant training materials for the EOSC, the summer school schedule draws on EOSCpilot analyses of expected skills gaps for users and providers of EOSC services. This includes topics such as:
State of the art programming languages and computing models,
Parallel programming techniques for high performance and high throughput computing,
Data analytics and machine learning for and in science,
Scientific workflow setup and management ensuring scalability and reproducibility,
Usage, orchestration, and management of cloud environments and container technologies.
We look forward to many fruitful discussions with participants from EOSCpilot and a diverse range of science communities. The evaluation of the GridKa School and feedback from trainers and participants will further help evolve the EOSCpilot Skills Framework.
