This school is focusing on to transfer computing knowledge of how we operate a Data Center infrastructure related to data-oriented computing services to the experiments such as ALICE, CMS, LIGO, Belle, RENO and Bio-infomatics. The target of this school is graduate or undergraduate students and Post-Docs who are interested in this regard.

We hope that this school help the participants understand what the basic building blocks are to run a Data Center and how to build them through this program. Labs will be provided to learn intensively the processes and test will be enforced to review how students understood.
