tCSC Security 2023
This school is organized by CERN in collaboration with the Faculty of Science, University of Split and will be hosted at the Mediterranean Institute For Life Sciences (MedILS) Conference Centre. The Centre is a historical renovated building situated in a wooded and landscaped park located on the Adriatic Sea coast, a few kilometres from the centre of Split.
The school will focus on the theme of Security of research computing infrastructures. The complete programme will offer 30 hours of lectures, workshops and hands-on exercises, as well as a student presentations session, and special evening lectures. Classes are prepared and given by speakers who are security professionals with many years of experience in academia and research.
(Please note that this programme may be subject to minor changes.)

The 12th Thematic CERN School of Computing (tCSC 2023) will take place on 11-17 June 2023. The academic programme will focus on Scientific Software for Heterogeneous Architectures, covering areas ranging from computer architectures to parallel and optimised software, and heterogeneous programming (CPU, GPU, HPC …).
tCSC 2023 is organized in collaboration with the University of Split Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FESB) and is hosted at the Mediterranean Institute For Life Sciences (MedILS) Conference Centre. The Centre is a historical building situated in a wooded and landscaped park, located on the Adriatic Sea coast, a few kilometers from the center of Split.
