05/08/2017 Internship at CERN : A Strong Belief Prevails Over All Self-Doubts

Burning at a scorching 103°F, etiolated from my body’s aversion to any kind of food that I was feeding it, trying hard to tame my running nose, I sat on my office chair on one of those Sundays. The weather was one of a kind outside – a delicious sun co-existing with a romantic breeze. Geographically, I was sitting very close to the border of Switzerland and France – countries where inhabitants are accustomed to hiking, running or doing anything that helps their spirit dance along with nature, especially during the weekends.

26/07/2017 CERN openlab Joins Intel Modern Code Developer Challenge

These are no ordinary challenges, as you might have already guessed—here is a brief summary of what they are tackling:

  • Smash-simulation software: Teaching algorithms to be faster at simulating particle-collision events.
  • Connecting the dots: Using machine learning to better identify the particles produced by collision events.
  • Cells in the cloud: Running biological simulations more efficiently with cloud computing.
  • Disaster relief: Helping computers to get better at recognizing objects in satellite maps created by a UN agency.
  • IoT at the LHC: Integrating Internet of Things devices into the control systems for the Large Hadron Collider.
17/07/2017 Машинное обучение и поиск темной материи: соревнование от ЦЕРНа и Яндекса

Яндекс уже несколько лет сотрудничает с ЦЕРНом. Он сделал для учёных-физиков поиск по событиям в БАК, предоставил свои вычислительные ресурсы и технологии обработки данных — в том числе Матрикснет и ClickHouse. В 2014 году Яндекс стал ассоциированным членом CERN openlab.

11/07/2017 CERN Openlab Summer Student Programme 2018

CERN Openlab Summer Student Programme 2018 notification, Eligibility Criteria, Selection Process and apply online at CERN Openlab Summer Student Programme 2018 is an upcoming research program for science and engineering students. Every year, CERN Openlab organizes Internship Program for undergraduate and graduate students. It is a good opportunity to the students who wish to learn some research work in summer break. CERN Openlab wants to give practical work experience to students who join Summer Internship Programme 2018.

10/07/2017 Big-bang project sparks cosmic response

Read more about grid computing Scientists in Switzerland are building a machine to test the big-bang theory of how the universe began. But first they have to construct a computer network that can handle the volumes of data the device will produce.

03/07/2017 Modular Supercomputer enters next round

For smartphones and laptops, it has long been more than simply computing power that counts: cameras, network interfaces, and GPS are just as important. A similar trend can be seen in the field of high-performance computing (HPC). In addition to compute-intensive simulations – the traditional tasks undertaken in scientific computing centres – new applications such as big data analytics and sophisticated visualizations are gaining importance – but current supercomputer architectures cannot handle these tasks efficiently.

24/06/2017 Eva Dafonte Pérez: "The LHC last year stored more than 250 years of movies in high definition"

Es mujer, informática, subdirectora del grupo de Bases de Datos...
Esto es poco habitual y es una oportunidad enorme que estoy aprovechando y disfrutando al máximo. Hay pocas mujeres en el campo de la informática y menos aún en puestos de dirección. 

19/06/2017 CERN openlab summer students arrive at CERN

Today, the first students participating in the 2017 CERN openlab Summer Student Programme have arrived at CERN. In total, 37 students were selected from over 1500 applicants to the programme. The remaining students will arrive over the next two weeks.

15/06/2017 MTN Foundation And Oracle To Equip Nigerian Students With Exclusive ICT Skills

MTN Foundation just partnered with Oracle to kick off the second phase of its collaboration plan to empower up to 2,000 MTNF scholars in the areas of Java Fundamental and Oracle Database trainings.

12/06/2017 Training tomorrow’s ICT specialists: students return to CERN

Next week, the first 2017 CERN openlab summer students will arrive at the laboratory. For the 37 students selected, a summer of enriching work — with fascinating lectures, exciting trips, and hands-on experience with the latest ICT hardware and software — awaits.
