Participants at SUG 2016 poster competition

The Ohio Supercomputer Center Statewide Users Group (SUG) has issued its Call for Participation. Featuring a talk on OSC’s pending Pitzer cluster, the event takes place Oct. 4 in Columbus, Ohio. The purposes of the SUG conference are to foster connections, update OSC’s user base on OSC’s direction, highlight new scientific developments produced using OSC resources, and obtain constructive feedback as to the future of OSC and our role in supporting science across Ohio.

We will have a flash talk and poster session to highlight the research and emerging ideas from OSC clients. Talks and posters will be selected from abstracts submitted via the registration form. We encourage posters by students just starting their work, to show creative ideas on how high-performance computing will enhance their research.

The scientists and engineers who use OSC find interaction in the research community to be central for the advancement of computational methods within and between disciplines. To ensure a productive environment for research, an active Statewide Users Group (SUG) provides the director with program and policy advice. SUG meets twice a year and is headed by a chairperson elected yearly from the SUG membership. The SUG has established Allocations, Software and Activities, and Hardware and Operations standing committees to assist in providing advice and direction to the Center.
