ROOT Summer Students' Workshop 2016

6th of July 2016

The CERN Summer Student (link is external) program is in full swing and ROOT is part of it. Today, the second instance of the ROOT Summer Students' Course takes place. A great success: already 120 students attended the course and a another instance has still to take place. Many exciting innovations were put in place in the program (link is external), including the usage of a micro CernVM virtual machine and the CERN jupyter notebooks' service, SWAN.

ESC 2014

18th of October 2014 to 24th of October 2014

Inscriptions to the ESC14 school are open! The school offers a limited number of young students and researchers an invaluable opportunity to learn from very qualified and experienced scientists how to exploit at best the evolution of modern computing systems used in doing science.

CSC 2014

23rd of August 2014 to 5th of September 2014

The 37th CERN School of Computing will be held in Braga, Portugal from Monday 25 August to Friday 5 September 2014 evening. Students will have to arrive on the Sunday 24th of August and leave on the Saturday 6th of September 2014.

Workshop on Grid and Cloud Computing - Concepts and Practical Applications

24th of July 2014 to 29th of July 2014

This course will be centered on Grid and Cloud computing. Following on from the hypercomputing experiments of the 80's and 90's, the Grid paradigm was proposed at the end of the last century. At that time the enormous computing needs of LHC were known, and LHC computing experts were modeling a distributed computing infrastructure that could satisfy them. Starting from the vision proposed by the Grid paradigm, the LHC joined forces with other communities to develop the largest Grid in operation, totaling >200k Cores, 80PB of disk space distributed in over 150 centres worldwide.
