CTSI, The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the institutions of the Southeast Wisconsin High Performance Cyberinfrastructure invite all local researchers and students to attend a week of free training on the use of cloud computing for scientific research July 30 – August 3, 2012.

The course will cover topics of interest ranging from scientific programming to the computer science aspects of cloud computing.

The comprehensive and practical curriculum will include learning the fundamentals and performing hands-on exercises with many technologies, such as:

  • Scientific workflow using cloud computing
  • Nimbus for scientific computing applications
  • MapReduce for rapidly processing vast amounts of data in parallel
  • OpenStack cloud operating system
  • OpenNebula cloud data center management system

Participants are expected to bring their own laptops.

This Science Cloud Summer School will be presented live via high-definition video conferencing technology on the UW-Milwaukee campus in Room S250 of Lubar Hall, 3202 N. Maryland Avenue, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
