The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announces that five science video animations produced at the center were among the 34 selected for the International Supercomputing '94 Conference showcase video, SuperViz '94, as excellent examples of scientific research. With the assistance of OSC staff Tim Rozmajzl, Leslie Southern, and Rob Berry, two of the projects were created by high school students who participated in OSC's 1994 Summer Institute program.
-Dr. Martha Krebs on the National Role of Energy Research
Dr. Martha Krebs, the first woman ever appointed to lead the U.S. Office of Energy Research (OER), will give the keynote address at the conference: Combustion, Environment, and Heating Technology--The Role of High Performance Simulation. This conference, hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, is on October 6-7, 1994, at the Fawcett Center For Tomorrow on the campus of The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.
As a part of The Ohio State University Summer Institute at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) from July 11-22, fifteen Ohio high school students and two high school teachers worked with Ohio's high performance computers -- supercomputers normally reserved for professional scientists and engineers.
Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Research Scientist Don Stredney and J. Edward Swan III of The Ohio State University (OSU) Advanced Computing Center for Art and Design (ACCAD) were selected to present "The Determination of Wheelchair User Proficiency and Environmental Accessibility Through Virtual Simulation" at the Virtual Reality And Persons With Disabilities conference in San Francisco, California, June 8-10, 1994, sponsored by IEEE and California State University Northridge (CSUN) Center on Disabilities.
Intergraph Corporation will present a Virtual Product Development Using Finite Element Analysis workshop on May 24, 1994, at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), 1224 Kinnear Road, Columbus, Ohio. This presentation emphasizes the role of analysis in the design of a new product. It elaborates on the work flow during the evolution of design from "art to part" utilizing latest CAD-CAM Concurrent Engineering technology.
At the 46th Annual State Science Day on April 16, 1994, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), Columbus, recognized Turpin High School (Cincinnati) Senior Adam Vandenberg for Outstanding Application of Computational Methods for his State Science Day Research Project.
Former IBM Fellow, Dr. Andrew Heller, will discuss such topics as "why evolution (death of Dinosaurs) is good" and why improved healthcare is bad for the computing industry at the upcoming High Performance Computing Seminar sponsored by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) takes delivery today of a 32 processor CRAY T3D -- an entry-level massively parallel processing (MPP) system. The system will be closely coupled with a CRAY Y-MP2E parallel vector supercomputer system installed at the same time. The new CRAY system fits well into OSC's existing CRAY Y-MP8/864 and Y-MP-EL/332 computing environment.
As a part of The Ohio State University Summer Institute, fifteen students will have the chance to work with Ohio's supercomputer - a computer normally reserved for professional scientists and engineers! Summer Institute attracts gifted and talented students to Columbus each summer for two weeks of exciting and challenging learning.
Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Research Scientist Don Stredney was selected to present "Biomedical Applications of High Performance Computing" at the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality II conference in San Diego, California, January 27-30, 1994, sponsored by the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.
On Friday, January 28, Stredney will detail the current activity of OSC and The Ohio State University in developing a system to provide an intuitive interface for manipulating and experiencing virtual data sets, specifically volume reconstructions of medical data.
