CosnersHouse.jpgIf you want to learn how to use national e-resources and manage your software and data, then register for the SeIUCCR  e-Infrastructure Summer School - there's only a few days left before registration closes on 15 August 2011.

Register for the event at the registration website.

The EPSRC-funded SeIUCCR project - pronounced sucker - holds its first four-day summer school at the idyllic Cosener's House in Abingdon (near Oxford) next month.

Exclusively for UK doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, the summer school will be very much hands-on with many practical sessions to demonstrate how to use national e-resources and manage your software and data. The SeIUCCR
team has brought together the UK's leading e-Infrastructure experts and researchers who will be on hand to provide personalised advice and to help work through individual problems. As well as covering all the topics you'd expect, such as Clouds and Grids, the summer school is a unique opportunity to meet and socialise with researchers across disciplinary boundaries.

With only 30 fully-funded places available, competition for places is high. If you (or anyone you know) would like to apply then please be quick as applications will close at 9am on Monday 15th August. Please note that all applicants are required to submit a case outlining why they should be given a place with those cases judged to be the strongest being offered a place.

Further details of the school can be found on the SeIUCCR  website and a detailed agenda is available from the registration site. Best of luck with your application!
