The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announced today that it is joining researchers, industry, and educational leaders from across the country to build the Advanced Computational Infrastructure for the 21st century.
The Cornell Theory Center (CTC) and the Department of Defense's Major Shared Resource Centers (MSRCs) have announced the launching of a Virtual Workshop to provide DoD-sponsored scientists and engineers with self-paced, on-line training in parallel computing.
James Estep and Christopher Lewis, both computer science majors at Shawnee State University, put their knowledge of computers to the test this summer. The Portsmouth residents spent eight weeks at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus learning about high performance networking.
"The experience we had this summer is definitely something we would not be able to learn in the classroom," Estep said. "I learned valuable organization and research skills, and a lot about advanced technologies."
When Leslie Hiemenz's doctoral adviser encouraged her to take her engineering skills and use them to advance medicine, she never imagined she would end up presenting her work at a national conference.
"I can't believe that I have come this far," said Leslie Hiemenz, a Ph.D. student in biomedical engineering at The Ohio State University. "It feels awesome. I keep giggling every time I read the conference poster and see that the presenters are 'experts in their fields.'"
US Representative Deborah Pryce (R-OH-15) hosted representatives from the Ohio Supercomputer Center and experts in high performance computing for a networking presentation on September 10 for members of the Congressional Internet Caucus and the Ohio Delegation to learn the educational value of the Internet.
Cleveland State University faculty soon will learn new ways to transform their data into visualizations to give themselves, colleagues and students a better understanding of their research with the help of a two-day workshop offered by the CSU Dept. of Chemistry and the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).
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.
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.
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.
Leslie Hiemenz, a doctoral candidate in Biomedical Engineering, was honored with the 1996-97 Link Foundation Fellowship in Advanced Simulation and Training.
