OSC has designed one of two new online training courses offered by the National Computational Science Alliance (NCSA) Partners for Advanced Computational Services (PACS). These parallel programming courses are designed for the high performance computing (HPC) user community. The Multilevel Parallel Programming Course was primarily created by the Science and Technology Support (STS) group at OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center), lead by Leslie Southern.
Education and Training
Kang, Wiet train students, doctors with surgical simulation program
Columbus, Ohio (February 8, 2011) - Two surgeons from Central Ohio recently traveled to Nicaragua on a humanitarian mission to treat children with serious ear, nose and throat conditions. However, this year they brought along some help in the form of high-tech equipment designed to appeal to a generation that grew up playing video games – not to entertain the children, but to train the local doctors and medical students.
Columbus, OH – October 9, 2006 – Learn the latest about some of the most robust engineering software packages available at the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) workshop, Using Altair HyperMesh and Hyperview.
This three day session will be held on October 16 – 18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, in OSC’s BALE theater at no charge. Geared toward engineers, the workshop will cover Altair HyperWorks’ high performance, comprehensive toolbox of CAE software for engineering design and simulation. Attendees should have a basic knowledge of finite element analysis.
