The School booklet, which will be distributed to all participants before the beginning of the School, will include the summaries of the selected students. Applicants who have an electronic e-mail address should indicate this on the right-hand side of the summary. This will facilitate further contact between participants. The summary may be sent separately by e-mail to You will find an example of an e-mail summary under "Example of summary".

The selection of the students will be made by the ASCI Board and the students will be informed of the outcome of their application in the first half of June 1996.


In all cases of withdrawal or cancellation, whether last-minute or otherwise, the choice of a replacement, if any, will lie entirely with the ASCI Board and not with the laboratory concerned.

Example of summary

First name and surname ---- e-mail address:
I am working with the Computer Centre at GSI. My present area of work is the integrated network and system management for the heterogeneous computer cluster at GSI. This requires a knowledge of network architectures, protocols and tools as well as an understanding of the management of a distributed computer cluster. For my Ph.D I designed and implemented a software (second level) trigger system for the Kaon spectrometer at GSI and I participated in the development of a VME-based data acquisition system.

I am familiar with RS/6000 (IBM), HP, AXP/alpha (DEC) workstations and Vax and the operations systems Unix (AIX, HP-UX) and VMS. I am familiar with shell scripting and DCL and the programming languages C, Fortran90, PL/I, Pascal and 68k-Assembler.
