Press Releases

David Hudak, professor of computer science at Ohio Northern University, recently was named a member of the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) Statewide Users Group.

The OSC Statewide Users Group, or SUG, connects OSC to the academic institutions in the state and provides a faculty and student viewpoint on OSC's operations.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is looking for freshmen and sophomores interested in embarking on a two-week journey into the world of high performance computing and networking.

Summer Institute '98: "Adventures in Virtual Worlds," will be held July 13-24 at OSC, in Columbus. Students will explore scientific investigation through collaborative team projects and intensive classes during this residential program.

Session Offers Tips On Accessing On-line Library Resources

Date: March 16, 1998
Times: 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., Noon
Location: LIS Computer Education Center, 22nd floor, Riffe Building

The Partners for Advanced Computational Services (PACS) User Services and Training committee, chaired by Frank Gilfeather of the University of New Mexico/Maui High Performance Computing Center, established top-level categories and identified the necessary tracking information for the Alliance training module repository during its December 1997 meeting at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

The repository will provide a common location for researchers to find current training materials in a timely and efficient manner. NCSA will build the database, forms, and scripts.

WHAT: The Ohio Supercomputer Center and Wright State University are co-sponsoring a one-day conference on November 10, 1997 on the topics of network applications for collaboration, visualization, and virtual reality.

WHY: The purpose of the session is to assemble representatives from Ohio higher education institutions and industry to share ideas on research in these areas and to facilitate the formation of working groups that could pursue opportunities for network experiments using the current infrastructure and through possible funded research.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announced today that it is joining researchers, industry, and educational leaders from across the country to build the Advanced Computational Infrastructure for the 21st century.

The Cornell Theory Center (CTC) and the Department of Defense's Major Shared Resource Centers (MSRCs) have announced the launching of a Virtual Workshop to provide DoD-sponsored scientists and engineers with self-paced, on-line training in parallel computing.

James Estep and Christopher Lewis, both computer science majors at Shawnee State University, put their knowledge of computers to the test this summer. The Portsmouth residents spent eight weeks at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus learning about high performance networking.

"The experience we had this summer is definitely something we would not be able to learn in the classroom," Estep said. "I learned valuable organization and research skills, and a lot about advanced technologies."

When Leslie Hiemenz's doctoral adviser encouraged her to take her engineering skills and use them to advance medicine, she never imagined she would end up presenting her work at a national conference.

"I can't believe that I have come this far," said Leslie Hiemenz, a Ph.D. student in biomedical engineering at The Ohio State University. "It feels awesome. I keep giggling every time I read the conference poster and see that the presenters are 'experts in their fields.'"

US Representative Deborah Pryce (R-OH-15) hosted representatives from the Ohio Supercomputer Center and experts in high performance computing for a networking presentation on September 10 for members of the Congressional Internet Caucus and the Ohio Delegation to learn the educational value of the Internet.
