VIRGO Computing School

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 14:00 to Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 18:00

This VIRGO Winter School is organised in the framework of the EOSC-hub H2020 project.

The target audience for this school is VIRGO members, postdocs, and senior researchers interested to improve their skills on data management tools and high-level solutions for supporting the VIRGO experiment.

Hands-on sessions will follow each theoretical talk, allowing to practice what has been presented.

Learning goal: 
  • Receive an overview about the basic concepts to use a grid production infrastructure from an user’s perspective.
  • Learn how use the DIRAC Workload and Data Management system to handle user payloads running on any EGI grid- and cloud-based resource, as well as on other computing resources (such as institutional clusters).
  • Get an overview on the high-level solution developed by INFN to facilitate the process of provisioning, creating, managing and accessing pool of heterogeneous computing resources (DODAS – Dynamic On Demand Analysis Service).
  • Receive an overview about the main Virgo Computing Centers
