SUMMER 2015 HPCC Newsletter (released 4/29/15)

May 27, 28, 2015 - SOFTWARE CARPENTRY WORKSHOP being offered at OSU from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. both days in 514 MSCS.  A commitment to attend for the entire duration is required as our lessons build upon each other.  This workshop will cover basic skills of the UNIX command line, Python programming and Git and Github. It is a full two-day workshop taught with a type-along approach where learners become more comfortable using their computers as a powerful research aid. You must provide your own laptop, and we'll make sure you leave with all the open source we use software installed on it.  This workshop is being offered FREE due to the generous support of Oklahoma EPSCoR, OU Libraries and the OSU HPC Center.  Any staff member, faculty member, post-doc, graduate student or undergraduate who would like to learn to use their computer more effectively as a research tool.

NOVEMBER 2014 OSU HPCC was granted membership into both the XSEDE Federation and the Service Provider (SP) Forum. These two organizations are designed to provide, enable and support the use of digital resources and services for conducting research.  The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and is the most advanced, powerful and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. As an XSEDE Federation Level 3 Service Provider, HPCC will be able to work closely with XSEDE and provide better support to our researchers, especially those that need to scale beyond our local systems.  The Service Providers (SPs) are independently funded projects or organizations that provide cyberinfrastructure (CI) services to the science and engineering community. In the US academic community, there is a rich diversity of SPs, spanning centers that are funded by NSF to operate large-scale resources for the national research community to universities that provide resources and services to their local researchers. OSU HPCC’s participation with XSEDE will give Oklahoma State University researchers increased access to XSEDE infrastructure, associated expertise and educational programs. Similarly, Oklahoma State University can provide the XSEDE community easy access to information about our resources as part of a national ecosystem to facilitate computational science.  This partnership helps bridge the gap between regional resources and helps formalize the connection between our local campus resources and XSEDE resources.  We believe that continuous building of larger communities of resources and facilitators helps to further research collaboration and technologies knowledge on a larger scale than single entities or localized partnerships can accomplish on their own.   https://www.xsede.org/web/sp-forum/spf-membership/-/wikid/LU1q/Public/Spf-members
