One week left for register to the 2011 CERN School of Computing - Deadline 3 May!

BEWARE: Registration for the CERN School of Computing – which will take place in Copenhagen from 15 to 26 of August – closes on 3 May.

The programme comprises three main themes: Data Technologies, Base Technologies and Physics Computing, and will address a number of timely questions, including:

  • Do you know how to bridge Grids and Clouds using virtualization technology?
  • Is it possible to simplify LHC physics analysis using virtual machine?
  • How can reliable storage services be built from unreliable hardware?
  • Why are tapes still used in high energy physics data storage?
  • How can I write code for tomorrow’s hardware, today?
  • Do you want to see your software with an attacker's eyes?
  • Can you hack your own code?
  • What's so special about High Energy Physic's data format?
  • What are the key statistical methods used in physics data analysis?

The CSC is a true Summer University. The focus is on delivering knowledge rather than know-how, which can better be provided in the form of training at home institutes.
A final examination is offered to students. Successful participants will receive the highly recognized CSC Diploma as well as formal Certificate of Credits awarded by the University of Copenhagen.

Networking and socialization is the other goal of CSCs. One vehicle for social networking is the CSC Sport Programme which proposes two to three hours of sports every afternoon to those who are interested.
