    University of Wisconsin Madison
    APPLICATIONS DUE FRIDAY MAY 1 2015
    Contact: user-school@opensciencegrid.org
    http://www.opensciencegrid.org/UserSchool

    DETAILS:

    ANNOUNCING THE OPEN SCIENCE GRID USER SCHOOL 2015!

    If you could access thousands, maybe millions of hours of computing, how would it transform your research? What discoveries might you make?

    We are looking for students to apply for and attend the Open Science Grid (OSG) User School 2015, where they will learn to use high throughput computing (HTC) to harness vast amounts of computing power for research.

    The School takes place 27-31 July at the beautiful University of Wisconsin in Madison.

    Using lectures, discussions, roleplays, and lots of hands-on work with OSG experts in HTC, students will learn how HTC systems work, how to run and manage many jobs and huge datasets to implement a full scientific computing workflow, and where to turn for help and more info.

    Worried about costs?

    Successful applicants will get financial support to attend the OSG School, covering all basic travel, hotel, and food costs. This is a great deal!

    Ideal candidates are science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduate students whose research demands large-scale computing.

    Also, we will consider applications from post-doctoral students, faculty, staff, and advanced undergraduates, so make a good case for yourself!

    IMPORTANT DATES

    Application Period - OPEN NOW: 1 April - 1 May 2015

    FREE WORKSHOP at OU, VSCSE Performance Tuning
    Last Changed by Kate Adams, Apr 03, 2015 11:52

    http://www.vscse.org/
    info@vscse.org

    DETAILS:

    The Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering is looking forward to another successful summer school program providing undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff, faculty and professionals the skills they need to use advanced computational resources to further their research.

    Exciting courses include:

    * Performance Tuning Summer School Aug 17-21 2015 (@ OU and others)
    * Science Visualization, August 24-25 2015

    These are being offered through one of a kind high-definition videoconferencing delivered simultaneously nationwide to specific sites.

    (Offsite participation ISN'T offered -- you MUST attend at one of the official sites.)

    * Supercomputing for Everyone Series:
    Performance Tuning Summer School
    (August 17 - 21, 2015)

    From a user perspective, supercomputers are more complicated to program and handle than an ordinary desktop workstation. 
    Unfortunately, this leads to parallel programs that do not necessarily satisfy the performance expectations of the users. Such unexpected performance results can have many reasons.

    Basic knowledge on performance modeling, prediction and verification, as taught in this summer school, is needed by users to formulate and verify their performance expectations.

    Sites for Performance Tuning:

    U Oklahoma
    Georgia State U
    Louisiana State U
    Michigan State U
    Pontificia Universidad Javeriana Cali
    Princeton U
    Purdue U
    U California Los Angeles
    U Colorado Boulder
    U Delaware
    U Houston, Center for Advanced Computing and Data Systems
    U Houston Clear Lake
    U Michigan
    U Tennessee/ORNL, JICS
    U Texas Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center
    U Texas Brownsville
    U Utah
    Virginia Tech

    * Science Visualization
    (August 24 - 25, 2015)

    This two-day training covers all aspects of visualizing data from a broad variety of domains.

    The training kicks off with an introduction to visualization followed by best practices when dealing with diverse data (abstract and spatial), demonstrating a variety of methods and techniques on those data sets and demonstrating a range of freely available software.

    Real world problems for which visualization is needed will be demonstrated and attendees will be taken through the process of visualizing this data and gaining insight.

    Virtual Summer School courses are delivered simultaneously at multiple locations across the country using high-definition videoconferencing technology.

    Please check below for available site locations.

    NOTE: Attendees are required to provide their own laptops.

    Sites for Science Visualization:

    Georgia State U
    Louisiana State U
    Marquette U
    Michigan State U
    Princeton U
    Purdue U
    U Arizona
    U California Los Angeles

    U Tennessee/ORNL, JICS
    U Texas Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center

    MST Hosting Teaching and Learning Technology Conference
    Last Changed by Kate Adams, Feb 26, 2015 13:24

    From Greg Smith, CIO of Missouri University of Science and Technology:

    We are hosting the Teaching and Learning Technology Conference, TLT,  March 12-13 here at the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus in Rolla, MO. This conference brings together many innovative professors in higher education along with their Instructional Designers, Developers and Technologists, plus many from K-12 who want to make sure their students are properly prepared for college. TLT does carry some Missouri S&T STEM influence but it only strengthens how EdTech is applied to the liberal arts community: An exciting area of development in the last year has been with the preparation of virtual labs for chemistry and biology.

    Plus TLT will be hosting a CanvasCon Event as part of the Conference.
    OH yes, did I mention that our TLT is FREE….

    The Keynote Speakers:

    Robbie K. Melton, Ph.D. --- Associate Vice Chancellor of Mobilization Emerging Technology; Tennessee Board of Regents,  “The Emergence of Mobile and Smart Devices: Is Your Device Smarter than You?”

    Jeff Schramm, Ph.D. --- Associate Professor of History & Political Science; Missouri S&T, “MOOC’s, LMS, ELI, PRR, CB&Q and EMD: What the history of technology can teach us about the future of higher education.”
