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.
Education and Training
OSC's (Ohio Supercomputer Center) nationally recognized workshops return this winter, offering several new courses for both beginner and advanced computer users.
OSC regularly provides workshops about new computing techniques and hardware and software resources at no cost to users. Remote workshops are also held through OSC's Access Grid node, an advanced audio-visual communications tool that transmits over Internet2.
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.
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.
Last week, a group of young women waded through a creek and toiled in a computer lab to experience science first-hand as participants of the Young Women’s Summer Institute.

Austin Kochs, a third-year student at The Metro Early College High School, delivered a final presentation last week on his internship experiences at the Ohio Supercomputer Center during the winter quarter.
Kochs gave his presentation to teachers, parents and Ohio Supercomputer Center staff and offered a comparative review of OpenFOAM, an open-source computational fluid dynamics program used by industry and academic researchers.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine (OSU) are designing a groundbreaking virtual surgical training program using software and hardware developed at OSC. The study, officially called “Simulation Technology in Veterinary Education: Research and Surgical Training,” began in January 2007 and will last for about eight months.
Partners for Advanced Computational Services (PACS) training materials will now be used to help reduce vulnerability in our nation’s information system.

Columbus, Ohio -- May 20, 2002 -- This week, Progress Forge introduces its first training programs in support of Star Bridge Systems'® VIVA® 2.0 development environment.
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."
