The OSG User School is our premier training program for researchers, facilitators, and others who are interested in learning more about how to use High Throughput Computing to advance research. This year’s program is online again and the application process is complete. BUT we have some exciting news about sharing the OSG School with the entire community!

For the first time, the OSG Virtual School 2021 will open its core lectures — live to the public. The public lectures are excellent learning opportunities for students and researchers who could not be full participants of the School. The sessions are also well suited for those interested in learning more about High Throughput Computing, OSG, HTCondor, or leveraging any of these in your computing research. Topics include:

  • The main concepts of High Throughput Computing (HTC)
  • The basics of using HTCondor
  • Getting started on OSG, a national distributed HTC infrastructure for Open Science
  • How to prepare software for use in HTC systems
  • Handling data (input and output) in HTC systems

The public lectures are held daily, August 2– 6, from 2:30–4:00 pm (CST). View the detailed schedule at https://indico.fnal.gov/event/49686/timetable

In addition, the lectures will be recorded and posted on the School website eventually, along with the complete set of exercises. While full participants also have priority access to experts, personalized learning plans, and small-group learning sessions, by opening lectures up to the public, a great deal of the School content will be available to everyone.



Registration is free but required. To register, visit https://indico.fnal.gov/event/49686/registrations/3094/
