Columbus, Ohio -- September 14, 1999 -- Ready or not, electronic commerce is transforming the nation's economy. Quick adaptation to e-commerce capabilities is the key to global competitiveness in the 21st century. Next week, Ohio will become the first state to benchmark its readiness for this new economy.

The Ohio Project is an effort to raise awareness of the power of computational problem solving by reaching out to potential industrial users of high performance computing (HPC) and networking or computational science methods. It has two goals:

Company's First Linux Cluster Will Aid OSC in Bringing New Technologies to the State of Ohio

Columbus, Ohio -- August 3, 1999 -- If you plan to present poster exhibits at SC99, please remember that submissions are due by Friday, August 6.

Poster presentations at SC99 should describe results and experiences related to high performance networking and computing. These exhibits offer researchers an opportunity to present their results informally and to talk with conference attendees about their work.

Columbus, Ohio -- August 3, 1999 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is looking for Ohio faculty interested in using distance learning technologies to bring computational science courses to campuses across the state.

OSC, a statewide resource for high performance technology, recently received funding from the Ohio Board of Regents to assist the state in developing computational science expertise at its public universities. OSC will fund computational science courses from various institutions that can be taught on multiple campuses.

Columbus, Ohio -- July 27, 1999 -- Most of us can remember a time in school when we wished our teachers could walk in our shoes for just one day. The students of 10 Ohio high school and middle school teachers will receive satisfaction in knowing that their teachers are doing just that this summer.

Columbus, Ohio -- July 21, 1999 -- Tomorrow's world is being experienced today -- at least by 11 Ohio high school students.

These high school students are using technologies most of us never will. And it's all happening during the 1999 Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Summer Institute: Computing and Networking for the New Millennium. The Institute, which runs July 12-23, immerses freshmen and sophomores in the technologies that are helping to shape the future -- high performance computing and networking.

Columbus, Ohio -- June 14, 1999 -- Ohio is in good hands if State Science Day resembles any indication of the future.

Brent M. McPherson and his partner Ryan Stocker, both seniors at Minerva High School, received the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Award for their exceptional team project entered at State Science Day 1999. McPherson and Stoker were two of three students chosen for this prestigious award.

Columbus, Ohio -- June 14, 1999 -- Ohio is in good hands if State Science Day resembles any indication of the future.

Joseph M. Kessler, a junior at Carroll High School, received the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Award for his exceptional project entered at State Science Day 1999. Kessler was one of three students chosen for this prestigious award.
