Tuskegee Grid School
The Tuskegee Grid School will take place February 6-8 2008
at the Tuskegee University - Tuskegee, AL
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
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 Tera Grid
- 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 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
- Techniques for workflow and collaboration
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.

Welcome to the web site of the 2008 Tuskegee Grid School. The Open Science grid
(OSG), the TeraGrid
, together with the Department of Computer Science
at the Tuskegee University
, the Computation Institute
of The University of Chicago
present a three day workshop program in grid computing and its application to scientific data analysis.
The aim of the workshop is to give the students a basic foundation in distributed computing, and valuable hands-on training in computing techniques. The workshop introduces essential skills that will be needed by students in the natural and applied sciences, engineering, and computer science to conduct and support scientific analysis in the emerging grid computing environment.
Participants will work with leading experts in grid computing, through a blend of lectures, discussions and hands-on computing exercises on large-scale grid hardware and software resources.
The workshop will be held Wednesday-Friday Feb 6-8 at the Tuskegee
,Tuskegee, AL, Room 102, Brimmer Hall.
Transportation and Directions
Tuskegee Kellogg Center
A block of rooms will be set aside for participants. More information to come.

Registration Deadline: Jan 26.
The workshop will be free to students (a refundable $50 deposit fee will be required for students) and there will be a $50 registration fee for all other categories of participants. The workshop is supported by Open Science Grid, through the support of the Department of Energy Office of Science and the National Science Foundation.
Full-time students from outside the Tuskegee area who seek travel and expense support should indicate this need in their application. A limited amount of such support may be available for transportation and lodging. We expect that most non-student participants will be from the neigboring states and/or have other means of support for the duration of the workshop.
