E-infrastructure summer school - registration open now!

A brief hiatus here on the NGS blog as several of us are / have been on holiday. Back to normal service now hopefully!

A lot of my time since I returned from holiday has been devoted not to the NGS but to another project I am currently working on. Catchily named SeIUCCR (pronounced "sucker"), the project was funded by the EPSRC "Crossing the Chasm" call which called for networks and "advocates" to promote the wider uptake of UK e-infrastructures by researchers in engineering and the physical sciences.

Part of the SeIUCCR project is an e-infrastructure summer school which is due to take place in Abdingdon near Oxford in September. The residential summer school will offer an introduction to e-infrastructure including Clouds and Grids to UK PhD students and postdocs over 4 days. The summer school is fully funded including travel expenses and applications are open now.

If you (or anyone you know) would like to apply then be quick as applications will close at 9am on Monday 15th of August. Details of the summer school can be found on the SeIUCCR website and a detailed agenda is available from the registration site.
