Science Cloud Summer School 2012

July 30 - August 3, 2012

10 participating sites


The Science Cloud Summer School targets education and training of graduate students and the fostering of a community around a topic that has increasing interest and relevance: the use of cloud computing technologies in science - including infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service. Because cloud computing systems and technologies provide a considerable departure from traditional models and evolve at a rapid pace, this event would provide a basis for students to immerse in a focused, intensive curriculum to learn fundamentals and experiment with these technologies in practice. We will cover topics of interest to students with both application and computer science focus.

Science Cloud Summer School will be part of the Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering’s (VSCSE) 2012 Summer School. VSCSE delivers innovative educational experiences on cutting-edge computational science topics to the next generation of graduate students in science and engineering.

Organizer: Geoffrey Fox, Indiana University
