Fourth Thematic CERN School of Computing

The Fourth Thematic School of Computing (tCSC2016) takes place this year in Split, Croatia, from 22 to 28 May 2016.


The theme is "Efficient and Parallel Processing of Scientific Data", looking at:

  • The challenge of scientific data processing: commonalities, analogies and the main differences between different sciences.
  • Size of scientific software projects.
  • Parallelism and asynchronism: computation and I/O.

The School is open to postgraduate students and research workers with a few years' experience in elementary particle physics, computing, engineering or related fields.  All applicants are welcome, including former and future participants in the main CSC summer school.

Registration will close on 15 February and participation is limited to 24 students. To register, please go here.

The Thematic Schools are part of the annual series of CERN Schools of Computing, to promote advanced learning and knowledge exchange on the subject of scientific computing between young scientists and engineers involved in particle physics or other sciences. 

They are shorter and more focused than the main summer CERN School of Computing, but still maintain the same guiding principles: an academic dimension covering advanced topics; theory and practice; networking and socialisation.

Applications will be accepted until 15 February 2016.
