Evert Attends NSF High Performance Computing Community Event

Dr. Jeremy Evert, assistant professor in the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Department of Computer Science & Engineering Technology, was one of a small group of faculty from 10 states to participate in the 2nd annual Community Building for High-Performance Computing Curriculum Development event held recently in Tulsa.

Hosted by the Tandy School of Computer Science, the workshop addressed the need to graduate more students with high-performance computing skills to help power the fourth industrial revolution. Attendees discussed activities and possible avenues to meet this growing demand.

Evert gave a presentation on the success of SWOSU students in supercomputing programs at the state and national level.

“It is an honor to be a part of a national event in my home state," Evert said. “SWOSU students have participated in several national opportunities, including the Blue Waters Student Internship Program, NASA research and the National Conference on Undergraduate Research. Oklahoma is also host to many local opportunities including the Oklahoma High Performance Computing Competition, Oklahoma Research Day, Oklahoma Supercomputing Symposium as well as our own SWOSU Research Fair.”

The event featured guest speakers from around the nation.
