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.
On April 19-20 and May 3-4, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present a Basic UNIX and Intermediate UNIX workshop, respectively, at Clark State Community College in Springfield, Ohio. There is no charge to attend, and members from the community, area businesses, and higher education institutions are invited.
Columbus, Ohio -- April 11, 2001 -- More than one hundred people successfully participated in a two-day MPI workshop held at OSC over the Access Grid on March 28-29.
Leslie Southern, OSC Science and Technology Support Lead, stated that, "This Access Grid event was like no other I've ever witness. We demonstrated how well this technology performs with interested participants and a dedicated instructor."
