Supercomputing Workshops and Symposia

Faculty Development

Supercomputing in Plain English Workshop

Supercomputing in Plain English Workshops target science and engineering students and researchers who have modest computing experience, as well as people who are sophisticated about computing. 

Workshops are taught through analogy, storytelling and play; modest computer background is assumed and jargon is minimized.

Prerequisite: 1 semester of Fortran, C, C++ or Java

For more information, contact Dr. Henry Neeman, program coordinator and director of the OU Supercomputing Center for Education and Research at 405.325.5386 or email
