Among the issues the committee plans to discuss are: a description of the approved competencies for the undergraduate minor in computational science; draft documents for the policy advisory committee discussing shared curricula; a draft of the governing board and advisory committee structure; updates on school projects; and National Science Foundation reviewer comments on an ATE proposal.
Education and Training
Columbus, Ohio -- September 15, 1997 -- James Estep and Christopher Lewis, both computer science majors at Shawnee State University, put their knowledge of computers to the test this summer. The Portsmouth residents spent eight weeks at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus learning about high performance networking.
"The experience we had this summer is definitely something we would not be able to learn in the classroom," Estep said. "I learned valuable organization and research skills, and a lot about advanced technologies."
August 11 and 12, 2000 at OSC in Columbus, Ohio
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.
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.
Columbus, OH -- July 28, 1995 - Vietnam's Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) and the Midwest Universities Consortium for International Activities (MUCIA) announce their upcoming seminar entitled "U.S. Education Into the Twenty-First Century." This joint program, to be presented at Hanoi's West Lake Village on July 31 and August 1, features three prominent speakers from leading universities in the United States and senior level MOET officials.
National Science Foundation funds cyberinfrastructure project led by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, The Ohio State University, the University of Akron and the Ohio Learning Network
Columbus, Ohio – The National Science Foundation last week designated nearly $1 million to provide Ohio’s workforce with crucial training in computational modeling and simulation.
Innovative summer experience for middle school girls announces participants chosen for competitive program
Columbus, Ohio — July 6, 2009 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center today announced the names of 15 elementary and middle school girls from six Ohio counties competitively chosen to attend the 2009 Young Women’s Summer Institute.
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.
For the first time, an online "Intermediate MPI" course is being released for public use. OSC and the Partners for Advanced Computational Services (PACS) created the course to be offered on the National Computational Science Alliance (NCSA) server after a series of successful introductory MPI courses.
