11-16 July 2011, Budapest, Hungary

The Distributed Computing Infrastructure projects in Europe aim to provide European researchers with a pan-European computing infrastructure built from federated distributed resources and also access to desktop grids. The projects support, maintain and develop middleware, and explore the application of cloud computing to grid infrastructures and scientific research.

The summer school will give insights into the distributed computing technologies provided by the European Middleware Initiative, the Initiative for Globus in Europe, the European Desktop Grid Initiative and StratusLab. Based on the experience of DEGISCO and the European Grid Infrastructure, the school will also address organization, application porting, and user support in production infrastructures based on these technologies.

The DCI projects are part-funded under the e-Infrastructures topic of the EU FP7 "Capacities" theme.
