OSC's Multilevel Parallel Programming Course Now Online at NCSA Website

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.

Ohio private, liberal arts colleges offer courses in parallel computing

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 – Feb. 17, 2009 – Twenty years of toiling on high performance computing initiatives and in software engineering hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm for a career working in math and science for Leslie Southern at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

Sun Solaris Training Class Proves Successful

A Sun Solaris training class, held at OSC on December 11, was a great opportunity for users to learn how to use the system environments more effectively for their research. Participants included Wilberforce University, OSU Medical Center, NCR, Lucent Technologies, Nationwide, Huntington Bank, and Chemical Abstracts.

"This was a great way to experiment with some new operating system features,” said Kevin Wohlever, OSC Senior High Performance Computing Systems Specialist. “It will definitely help as we prepare for supporting some storage and disaster recovery projects here at OSC."

Alliance PACS Establish Repository

The Partners for Advanced Computational Services (PACS) User Services and Training committee, chaired by Frank Gilfeather of the University of New Mexico/Maui High Performance Computing Center, established top-level categories and identified the necessary tracking information for the Alliance training module repository during its December 1997 meeting at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

The repository will provide a common location for researchers to find current training materials in a timely and efficient manner. NCSA will build the database, forms, and scripts.
