EU-IndiaGrid2is organising this Grid school in collaboration with CHAIN (Co-ordination and Harmonisation of Advanced e-INfrastructures:, and EPIKH (Exchange Programme to advance e-Infrastructure Know-How: announce the Grid School for site administrators and Application Porting to be held in Kolkata, India.

Grid site administrators


The aim of this tutorial is to prepare system administrators on the installation of grid sites and actually put together those facilities to increase the size of the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 infrastructures. The first days will be dedicated to the gLite middleware, services installation and configuration. The second part will be dedicated to have the participants install sites, remotely (from the tutorial), at their home institutions. At the end of the school a participant organisation will have an operational grid node within the EU-IndiaGrid2 grid infrastructure.

Grid school on application porting

The Grid School aims at increasing the number of scientific/industrial applications running on the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 production infrastructure. A participant will learn how to port, deploy and run his application on the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 grid infrastructure. The School also aims at bringing new research groups to use the CHAIN/EU-IndiaGrid2 resources as well as to diversity the application domains and scientific communities. At the end of the school a participant will have its own application operational and running on the EU-IndiaGrid2 grid infrastructure.

The school will take in total 18 days and it aims at support participants at effectively porting and running an application on the Grid. As you may see it consists of two separate parts: one for site administrators, one for application porting.
