The Swiss Grid School 2010 (SGS’10) is organized by the Swiss National Grid (SwiNG) association. Created in October 2007, SwiNG promotes Grid computing in several scientific and industry-related domains (physics, chemistry, life science, engineering, finance, computer science, etc.). One of SwiNG’s objectives is to run education and outreach activities. In this context, SGS’10 aims at transferring Grid knowledge to academia, research and industry. The following audience is particularly addressed:
- Graduate students (master, Ph.D. level)
- IT Department/services
- Practitioners and researchers from industry, academia and government organizations interested in further advancing the use or the development of Grid technologies.
SGS’10 provides lectures and practical lab sessions that illustrate the current state-of-the-art in Grid computing in the following domains: Grid architecture, security and middleware, resource management, data management and scientific workflow management. It also focuses on a variety of practical case studies (applications).
