Upcoming research computing events

High-Performance Computing Symposium, introductory UNIX classes begin in January


8:42 a.m., Dec. 19, 2014--University of Delaware Information Technologies (IT) has announced a symposium series for those researchers using or interested in using the University's High-Performance Computing (HPC) clusters. In addition, IT will offer a short course about using the UNIX operating system in January.

Researchers using UD's two HPC community clusters, Mills and Farber, have requested more frequent meetings to share information with each other and to discuss use of the clusters with IT staff. The HPC Symposium sessions will be held on the fourth Wednesday of each semester or term.

Research Stories

Chronic wounds

UD's Millicent Sullivan and Kristi Kiick have received a $1.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health for research that could provide a new approach to the treatment of chronic wounds.

Prof. Heck's legacy
