COLUMBUS, Ohio -- January 16, 2004 -- On January 27, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present a workshop at Wittenberg University entitled, “High Performance Computing at OSC: An Overview.”

The lecture will be held in the BDK Science Center’s Bailey Auditorium from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. There is no charge to attend, and members from the community, area businesses, and higher education institutions are invited to participate.

OSC management team members and staff scientists will provide an overview of high performance computing and related resources at OSC.

The OSC Springfield Technology Park lead will give a briefing and answer questions about OSC’s new high performance computing center to be located in Springfield.

“Now we have even greater opportunities to provide high performance computing resources and training to the Springfield area,” said Leslie Southern, Director of High Performance Computing. “We are proud to partner with the Springfield community in leading the way for technological and economic development,” said Southern.

As a state-supported institution, OSC’s resources are subsidized through the Ohio Board of Regents, and are available to all Ohio academic researchers and their collaborators.
