|:: About the School
The School will be held in Vico Equense
Italy (near Naples) from Sunday 10th till Friday 22th July 2005.
The school will consist of lectures by experts in various aspects
of grid middleware and grid applications and laboratory sessions
in which the students will carry out practical exercises.
The school will provide an in-depth introduction to Grid technologies
and applications. The hands-on laboratory exercises will give participants
practical experience with widely used Grid middleware software for
basic Grid activities. By the end of the school, students will be
familiar with the fundamental components of Grid environments, such
as authentication, authorization, resource access, and resource
discovery; able to use grid environments for basic and advanced
job submission; and conversant in Grid efforts worldwide and key
emerging Grid applications.
|:: Target Audience
The target audience consists of young researchers (from technical
industries, research laboratories, and academic environments) who
have recently started (or are about to start) working on grid research
projects - of which there are many funded by the EU, the US and
countries in Asia Pacific.
Prospective students from computer science
backgrounds will be encouraged
to apply; the school will be designed assuming students have diverse
|Grid computing is an important new field, distinguished
from conventional distributed computing by its focus on large-scale
resource sharing and innovative applications but there are few opportunities
to learn the basics of grid computing hands-on.
The curriculum of the school will include lectures
on the main topics of Grid development and technology, as well as
emerging key grid applications. The lectures will be given in the
mornings. In the afternoons the practical
exercises will take place on the equipment installed in the school
site in Vico Equense, Italy (near Naples), which will be the same
hotel that successfully hosted the International
Summer School on Grid Computing 2003 and The
2nd International Summer School on Grid Computing 2004.
The curriculum for the school is being designed
by an international program committee
of experts. The members of the program committee are:

||University of Naples, Federico II and ICAR-Napoli CNR
||Fujitsu Laboratories of Europe
To support the hands-on laboratory sessions, a testbed will be established
that will host widely used middleware produced by projects in the
US, the EU, and in Asia Pacific (AP). The testbed will be connected
to major international science grids and thus provide a rich environment
for hands-on learning and experimentation.
:: Cancellation and Replacement
The Program Committee reserves the right to refuse reimbursement
of part or all of the fee in the case of late cancellation. However,
each case of cancellation will be considered individually.
In all cases of withdrawal or cancellation, whether last-minute
or otherwise, the choice of a replacement, if any, will lie entirely
with the Program Committee and not with the institution concerned.
Participants will be accommodated in the Hotel
