The Open Science Data Cloud (OSDC) NSF-sponsored Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) program
is driven by two main goals:
- Use the Open Science Data Cloud to train the next generation of scientists (graduate students and early
career researchers) in data science and to sponsor their travel so that they can collaborate on
data science research projects with OSDC partners in the United Kingdom, Namibia, the Netherlands,
Japan, China, Brazil, and other countries.
- Perform research to improve scientific clouds, including their software stack, the software service
they run, and the algorithms that support these services and to use the resulting knowledge to
improve the OSDC.
We've posted the applications for data intensive computing summer fellowships abroad for summer 2015. This is a great opportunity for graduate students to learn and do research with large scientific datasets in a cloud environment, while gaining international experience.

We've uploaded the presentations given at the 2014 Amsterdam workshop.
Here are tutorial notes from Shantenu Jha on RADICAL Cybertools for data-intensive applications.
