Oklahoma Supercomputing Symposium 2009

OSCERLogoNEWUnless you went on the supercomputer tour last fall with the Math Club, you might not realize that OU has one of the fastest supercomputers among universities.  And you might not realize that it’s available to all OU faculty and their students to do research.

Dr. Neeman, the director of the OU Supercomputing Center for Education & Research, OSCER, runs our supercomputing facility and has asked that I pass along this invitation to join in on the 2009 Oklahoma Supercomputing Symposium.  It’s entirely free, it’s on our campus, and you can attend whatever bits you find interesting.  The schedule is still being put together, but there is bound to be lots of cool stuff going on.  Here is what Dr. Neeman had to say about it:

Other speakers will be announced soon.

We’d be delighted to have you participate. It’s a great way to
learn what’s happening on the Advanced Computing side of your
research and teaching areas.

The Symposium is FREE and comes with meals and snacks, including
the FREE reception and poster session the evening of Tue Oct 6.

And, if you know of students — graduate, undergraduate, community
college, vo-tech, high school — who are interested in these areas,
this is a great opportunity to introduce them to conferences,
especially because it’s FREE.

Also, if you know of colleagues who might be interested, please feel
free to forward this note to them.

We’ll also have a vendor exposition, where you’ll have an opportunity
to learn about existing and emerging supercomputing technologies.
