The Grid Blog: 2006 Summer Grid Workshop
The Summer Grid Workshop, a unique opportunity for graduate and advanced undergraduate students to learn about distributed computing and its application in scientific data analysis, is now accepting applications. The deadline is April 23 to apply for the 2006 session, which will be held June 26-30 on South Padre Island, Texas.

The aim of the program will be to give students a basic foundation in distributed computing, and valuable hands-on training in computing techniques. The workshop introduces essential skills that will be needed by students in the natural and applied sciences, engineering, and computer science to conduct and support scientific analysis in the emerging grid computing environment.
The school's Scientific Organizing Committee consists of scientists from GriPhyn, iVDGL, the Grid Center, NCSA, and UTB/TSC. Workshop participants will work with some of the world's leading experts in grid computing, through a blend of lectures, discussions, and hands-on computing exercises completed on large-scale grid hardware and software resources.
