SDSC Summer Institute 2014: HPC Meets Big Data will deploy a flexible format on designed to help attendees during the week of August 4 - 8, 2014.

The first half will consist of plenary sessions covering the skills that are considered essential for anyone who works with big data. Topics include data management, running jobs on SDSC resources, reproducibility, database systems, characteristics of big data, techniques for turning data into knowledge, software version control and making effective use of hardware.

Followed by a series of parallel sessions that allow attendees to dive deeper into specialized material that is relevant to their research projects, with the exact choice of topics will be based on feedback collected during registration. The Summer Institute is targeted to individuals interested in data science and computational science-especially current and potential users of SDSC's data-intensive resources.

Applications accepted through May 30.
