Sixth "Inverted CERN School of Computing": 25-26 February

Attendance is free for iCSC2013 - “Where students turn into teachers”. Topics include GPUs, Computer vision, SW Testing, Grid interpretation


For the 6th time since 2005, the CERN School of Computing (CSC) is hosting its 'inverted' school. iCSCs are part of the CSC series of events, together with the main summer school organized this year in Cyprus and the thematic school in Split next June. iCSC2013 will take place at CERN on 25 and 26 of February, in Room 513-1-024.

The programme was designed from proposals made by CSC2012 students via an electronic discussion forum. This year’s programme focuses on: GPU computing in High Energy Physics, Computer vision, Testing in large scale distributed systems, Grid Interpretation by LHC experiments

Attendance is free and open to everyone. Though most of the lectures are part of a series, the programme is designed so that lectures can be followed rather independently. Registration is not mandatory, but will allow you to obtain a copy of the full printed booklet (first registered, first served).
