Software Applications and Codes Meeting for the Ohio Supercomputer Center Bioscience Cluster Expansion

HumanFriday, April 4, 2008
10:00 AM until 2:00 pm
Bale Conference Room, Ohio Supercomputer Center, Columbus Ohio

Agenda Video Stream

Who: Biomedical and biosciences researchers currently using/or wishing to use high performance computing and storage resources for their research.

Why: The Ohio Supercomputer Center is proposing to acquire a major expansion to the recently installed IBM Cluster 1350; it is to be integrated with the IBM e1350 Opteron cluster (Glenn), while adding capabilities that more directly serve the expanding set of biosciences and biomedical applications.  The system will benefit a number of current clients while positioning Ohio researchers to take a leading role in these priority research areas.

As a biomedical/bioscience researcher, we invite your participation in the meeting so that we can review the proposed expansion and understand your computational needs and requirements, particularly with respect to software applications and codes that you are using or plan to use in the near future.
