01/03/2017 How foundation turned our lives around, by beneficiaries

Mufutau Akuruyejo, a Computer Engineering student of the University of Lagos, Akoka, was in a happy mood. He was fortunate to be selected among the winners of the MTN Foundation’s Science and Technology Students scholarship. Having done very well and consistently maintaining the required 2.1 grade every semester, he was considered good enough to participate in the fully-funded, nine-week CERN ICT Openlab programme in Switzerland. He was the first Nigerian and African to be selected.

22/02/2017 Отчет Российского ИТ университета Иннополис

 В приветственном слове директор Университета Иннополис Кирилл Семинихин отмечает, что каждый следующий год для Университета сложнее предыдущего, так как вуз не сбавляет темпов в реализации амбициозной цели - стать одним из мировых лидеров в области ИТ - образования.

21/02/2017 Cern: 'We generate 1PB each second. Here's what that's taught us about big data'

Cern's experiments probing the fundamental nature of the universe create a lot of data—roughly four times that held in the US Library of Congress—every second. The EU research institution has a long history of generating more data each day than most companies do in a lifetime, during its experiments colliding particles travelling at close to the speed of light.

Openlab Summer Students Programme 2017 promosso dal Cern di Giinevra: offre a studenti di Informatica, Ingegneria, Matematica e Fisica l’opportunità di lavorare a un progetto di informatica avanzata durante l’openlab estivo.

20/02/2017 OpenStack Superuser Containers on the CERN Cloud

We have recently made the Container-Engine-as-a-Service (Magnum) available in production at CERN as part of the CERN IT department services for the LHC experiments and other CERN communities. This gives the OpenStack cloud users Kubernetes, Mesos and Docker Swarm on demand within the accounting, quota and project permissions structures already implemented for virtual machines.

20/02/2017 The Present and Future of OpenMP*

The OpenMP* application programming interface turns 20 this year. To celebrate, we tapped Michael Klemm (the current CEO of the OpenMP Architecture Review Board, or ARB) and some of his colleagues to give an overview of the newest features in the specification―particularly, enhancements to task-based parallelism and offloading computations to specialized accelerators.

Would you be interested in working on an advanced IT project for two full months during the summer? If so, you should apply to the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme!

15/02/2017 CERN Openlab Summer Student Programme 2017
CERN Openlab Summer Student Programme 2017 is launched by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research to train students on the latest hardware and software technologies and teach them to incorporate IT solutions into high energy physics. CERN Summer Internship Programme is offered to students pursuing graduation or postgraduation
for at least three years in Engineering, Computer Science, Physics or Mathematics who are interested in working on advanced IT projects for a twomonth period between JuneSeptember 2017. Students who are still pursuing their course are also eligible to apply provided that they finish their courses prior to the start of the program. The last date to submit CERN Openlab Summer Student Programme Application Form is 15 February 2017.
