Columbus, Ohio -- July 7, 1997 -- Students participating in a program starting July 14 at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus will use computers similar to the one that Garry Kasparov lost a chess match to earlier this year.

The 16 students will use the Center's high end computing and networking resources to work on problems not unlike those that chemists, physicists, and engineers try to solve. They were selected out of 51 applicants to participate in the 1997 Summer Institute program sponsored by OSC and The Ohio State University.

Columbus, Ohio -- March 24, 1997 -- Capital University in Columbus and Ohio Northern University in Ada are often recognized for their programs in music, law or a traditional arts program, and...computer science? Now they are. Both universities now offer courses in parallel computing to undergraduates. These types of classes are usually offered only at major research universities.

Columbus, Ohio -- March 14, 1997 -- Researchers from across the country will come to Ohio on April 2-3 to learn how to enhance their use of parallel processing, one of the latest forms of computing.

Columbus, Ohio -- March 12, 1997 -- Leslie Hiemenz, a doctoral candidate in Biomedical Engineering, was honored with the 1996-97 Link Foundation Fellowship in Advanced Simulation and Training.

Columbus, Ohio -- March 10, 1997 -- A new project now underway will provide Ohio's public college nd university students and faculty, a growing number of the state's private colleges, and the State Library of Ohio with instantaneous electronic access to a range of valuable materials, information and data which are currently hard-to-find and/or available in non-circulating form only.
