Global Grid Forum (www.ggf.org) is pleased to announce its sponsorship of 
the 2003 International School on Grid Computing. The school -- to be held 
in Vico Equense, Italy (near Naples) July 13 - 25, 2003 --  will provide an 
in-depth introduction to Grid technologies and applications.  A web page 
for the school has been set up with information on how to apply, logistics, 
cost, etc.  Please see


The site includes a web-based form to apply for participation in the 
school.  Applications must be submitted by May 11, 2003.

The school's curriculum is being finalized.  It will provide an in-depth 
introduction to Grid technologies, covering widely deployed grid middleware 
(Globus, Condor, Unicore), as well as grid services and data 
services.  There will also be focused lectures on specialized topics such 
as applications and experiences with bringing up production 
grids.  Hands-on laboratory exercises will give participants practical 
experience with widely used Grid middleware software for basic Grid 
activities.  To support the laboratory sessions, a testbed will be 
established that will host widely used middleware produced by projects in 
the US, the EU, and in Asia Pacific (AP).  The testbed will be connected to 
major international science grids and thus provide a rich environment for 
hands-on learning and experimentation.

By the end of the school, students will be
    * familiar with the fundamental components of Grid environments, such 
as authentication, authorization, resource access, and resource discovery;
    * able to use grid environments for basic and advanced job submission; 
    * conversant in Grid efforts worldwide and key emerging Grid applications.
The final program will be posted on the school's web page.  Questions 
regarding the school should be addressed to grid-school at ggf.org. Please 
check the web page periodically, as it will be kept up to date.
