Progress towards next generation computing platforms moved from stand-alone parallel infrastructures to distributed cloud platforms. The School will be about the introduction of young researchers to the scientific and technological innovation that has led to the development of the cloud computing as an answer to the need of society to perform big experiments, manage large amounts of data and combine different knowledge, expertise and innovation. The School will provide also basic competences and training on applications to molecular and quantum dynamics research and education, through lectures delivered by experts accompanied by hands-on sessions.
