Is two better than one? It is when you're combining two of the state's best resources. The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and OhioLINK offer Ohio's colleges and universities state-of-the-art computing, networking, and information programs that lead the nation in cost-effective delivery of high-quality services. Together, they offer a powerful problem-solving environment. Ohio has great potential as an information state with these two shared resources.

Just like trends in clothing, cars change their look and design rapidly with the times.

In recent years, the number of pickup trucks, passenger vans, and sport utility vehicles seen on US highways has grown substantially. Recent crash testing by the Federal Highway Administration indicates that these types of cars may be more prone to overturn when crashing into guardrails on US highways.

Why does a second Internet need to be created? Ask 10 researchers and policymakers across the nation and you may receive 10 different answers. One important answer lies in the health and well-being of Americans.

Many advances in medicine depend on advances in technology, including virtual reality, computer simulations, and a faster Internet. Researchers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus will demonstrate their recent work at the Spring Internet 2 (I2) Member meeting in Washington, DC, April 14-18.

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.

Anthony Johnson, associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Toledo, 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.

On March 26, 1998, the Ohio Supercomputer Center, OhioLINK, and OSC Networking will sponsor a one-day conference on digital libraries. The session will enable representatives from Ohio's higher education institutions and industry to share ideas on digital library research and form working groups that could pursue opportunities for network experiments using the current infrastructure and possible funded research. Faculty, technical staff, and industry personnel with interests in digital libraries are expected to attend.

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.

Interaction among users is central to the advancement of computational methods in all disciplines. As a SUG representative for Capital, Vakalis works with members from other Ohio institutions to offer OSC direction and advice to help the Center better serve users' needs.

SUG members are appointed by university presidents, provosts, and vice presidents upon recommendation by other OSC users.

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.
