This school is focusing on to transfer computing knowledge of which how we take care of the data from experiments at CERN or other facilities in Korea in terms of grid computing. The target of this school is graduate students and Post-Docs who are interested in the field that GSDC is supporting: ALICE, CMS, Belle, LIGO, RENO and Bio-infomatics.

We hope that this school help the participants understand how and where the data is processed (beyond experimental domain), and what the basic building block is to process such a task. Also we expect that the participants will understand how to use facilities running at GSDC.
