Are you a B.Sc. or M.Sc. student in computer science, mathematics, engineering or physics, interested in working on advanced IT projects at CERN for two full months during the summer? CERN openlab has R&D activities on multithreaded programming, data acquisition systems, large scale databases, data analytics, and cloud computing that are open to students who will have completed at least three years of full-time studies at the university level by next spring.
During nine weeks from June to August 2014, CERN openlab summer students will work with some of the latest hardware and software technologies and see how advanced IT solutions are used in high energy physics. The program partners with Huawei, Intel, Oracle, Siemens, contributor Rackspace, and associate Yandex.
The students also will attend a series of IT lectures especially prepared for them by experts at CERN, as well as have the opportunity to attend the CERN generic student programme lectures. Visits to the accelerators and experimental areas are part of the program, as well as external visits.
CERN is a place where dizzying IT challenges abound and participation as a CERN openlab student may lead to follow-on projects in the student’s home institute at master’s or Ph.D. level. It may even inspire participants to become entrepreneurs in cutting-edge computing.
