International school  “Scientific computing, Big data analytics and machine learning technology for megascience projects” in frames of the Conference "Distributed Computing and Grid-technologies in Science and Education" will be held on September, 10 – 14, 2018 at the Laboratory of Information Technologies (LIT) of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR), Dubna.

The registration for the school will take place on September 9 from 17.00 to 20.00 in the hotel "Dubna" (Vekslera str. 8).
During the registration, you will receive your laboratory permit to enter the JINR territory where the school will take place at the conference hall of the laboratory of information technologis.
In case you are not able to register on September 9, please pick up your laboratory permit at JINR Visit Centre (Molodezhnaya str. 5) from 09.00 t0 18:00 except lunch break from 13:00 to 14:00.

Please be aware that it is utterly important to return your laboratory permit back to the JINR Security Department. Don’t forget to drop it in the mailbox of JINR Visit Centre before your departure.

The goal of the school is to attract young scientists, students and postgraduate students to solve IT-tasks and challenges related to various aspects of megaprojects in the field of high-energy physics and to familiarize participants with modern methods of Big data analytics, machine learning and high-performance computing systems and to use this knowledge to solve IT tasks in the field of high-energy physics.

The main topics of the school are:
  • Big data by the example of the NICA megaproject and experiments at the Large Hadron Collider as the main source of big data in high-energy physics;
  • Distributed systems for collecting, processing, managing and storing information;
  • Use of high-performance systems (supercomputers, computing clusters) for data processing and modeling of physical experiments;
  • Machine learning. 

Working languages: Russian and English.

Selection of participants takes place in universities.
Please DO NOT register at the GRID 2018 conference website (GRID 2018 conference website is for those participants who make a report at the conference).

Organizers provide accommodation and per diem (at a rate of 500 rub/day.)
