Abstract
The Science Cloud Summer School targets education and training of graduate students and the fostering of a community around a topic that has increasing interest and relevance: the use of cloud computing technologies in science - including infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service. Because cloud computing systems and technologies provide a considerable departure from traditional models and evolve at a rapid pace, this event would provide a basis for students to immerse in a focused, intensive curriculum to learn fundamentals and experiment with these technologies in practice. We will cover topics of interest to students with both application and computer science focus.

    Use of FutureSystems
    FutureGrid will be used to support the hands on sessions
    Scale of Use
    Due to the many users we will focus on the start of many small environments. Users may have to team up into teams of two in case we have too many users.
