Open Science Grid Workshop @ Jefferson Lab

March 21, 2019

8:45 am - 12:30 pm

Instructors: Carrie Brown, Christina Koch

Helpers: Thomas Britton

This workshop is for anyone at the Jefferson Lab who wants to learn more about the Open Science Grid (OSG), how the OSG can accelerate their research, and how to use the OSG effectively.



This workshop is hands-on! While not strictly required, we strongly encourage participants to bring a laptop and make sure you have the following:

If you have limited (or no) experience using the command line, we highly recommend reviewing the Software Carpentry shell lesson before this training, particularly parts 1-3.

About the Open Science Grid

The Open Science Grid provides a fabric of services to enable distributed, high-throughput computing capabilities across the US. In general, OSG is organized into VOs (Virtual Organizations) around large experiments, but individual PIs and groups too small for the VO model can use the hosted services provided by OSG Connect.
