Uppsala: Registration to CSC2012 – This summer in Uppsala

The 35th CERN School of Computing will be held at the Uppsala University, Sweden
from Monday 13th of August to Friday 24th August 2012

Programme highlights
The CERN School of Computing 2011 is organised around 3 thematic themes, each theme comprising lectures and exercises.

  • Do you know how to bridge Grids and Clouds using virtualization technology?
  • Is it possible to simplify LHC physics analysis using virtual machine?
  • How can reliable storage services be built from unreliable hardware?
  • Why are tapes still used in high energy physics data storage?
  • How can I write code for tomorrow’s hardware, today?
  • Do you want to see your software with attacker’s eyes?
  • Can you hack your own code?
  • Do you know what do ‘code injection’ and ‘integer overflow’ have in common?
  • What’s so special about High Energy Physic’s data format?
  • What are the key statistical methods used in physics data analysis?

All the answers at CSC2012

Data Technologies
The Data theme presents the state of the art technologies and options for data storing and management in specially demanding environment. It includes security and authentication aspects relevant to data management. The theme is equally divided between lectures and practical exercise sessions.

Base Technologies
The Base Technologies theme addresses a selection of the most relevant underlying technologies: software development security, advanced networking, computer architecture, performance tuning as well as virtualisation / cloud computing. It also offers a range of practical exercises.

Physics Computing
The Physics Computing theme focuses on informatics topics specific to HEP. After setting-the-scene lectures, it addresses Software Engineering Techniques, ROOT and Data Analysis. The lecturers come from Croatia, Norway, the USA and CERN to teach theory and organize practical work.
