Ohio Supercomputer Center Workshop: Computing Services to Accelerate Research and Innovation
Discover how the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) can help accelerate your scientific research by attending a free workshop and training session on Wednesday August 10, 2016. Sponsored by UC Information Technologies (UCIT) Research & Development, the workshop will help researchers learn more about the high performance computing services provided by the Ohio Supercomputer Center and how to access them. Topics include:
- What is OSC? How can OSC help you?
- High performance computing concepts
- Hardware and software available at OSC
- Details on our newest clusters
- How to connect and log in
- How to use storage and file systems
- Introduction to new web interface OnDemand3
There are no prerequisites to attend the workshop, and participants will be able to connect to the supercomputers during the event. Two identical sessions will be held on August 10th, from 10:00 to 11:30 A.M. in the Health Sciences Library, Electronic Classroom, and from 1:00 to 2:30 P.M. in the Langsam Library Room 475.
