CEWES-AHPCRC Planning Meeting on Computer Science

Ahmed Sameh (Professor and Head, Computer Science, and also one of the key researchers at the AHPCRC) and Tayfun Tezduyar (Director of AHPCRC), visited the Information and Technology Laboratory (ITL) at US Army Waterways Experiment Station in Vicksburg, Mississippi, in February 1995. They were hosted by Dr. N. Radhakrishnan (Director of ITL) and Dr. Windell Ingram (Chief of the Computer Science Division of ITL). The purpose of the visit was to make plans for collaborative work in the area of Computer Science between AHPCRC and ITL researchers. Presentations by Dr. Radhakrishnan, Dr. Ingram and Dr. Sameh were given at a meeting attended by a number of other ITL researchers. In addition to exploring research areas of mutual interest, issues regarding long-term visits by the ITL researchers to the AHPCRC were discussed.

The Works: A Technology Discovery

The Works, a Minneapolis community initiative created to address the urgent need for public education about technology, held the grand opening of its premier show, The Interactive Image: Hands-on, Minds-on Exhibits about Imaging and Optical Technology on February 27, 1995 at the University of Minnesota Bell Museum. Color images from flow simulations carried out on the Cray T3D by the AHPCRC researchers were featured in the exhibit. The flow simulations for an automobile and an aircraft were part of an effort by the AHPCRC researchers, partially funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency, for the development of scalable libraries for fluid mechanics applications.

The mission of The Works is to increase understanding about technology, using hands-on, minds-on learning, presented through a series of high quality touring exhibits. These exhibits will tour museums, state fairs and other public venues across America, especially in the Midwest, and also be used in educational programs for students, teachers and youth groups. The Works has a special commitment to attracting and serving people from groups that are underrepresented in technical professions, including minorities and women.
