Statement of Purpose

The OU Supercomputing Center for Education and Research (OSCER) will provide the University of Oklahoma (OU) community with High Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure in education and research facilitation, and where possible will furnish hardware and software resources, technology transfer support, and outreach support. OSCER's primary focus will be on education and research, with all other activities directed toward supporting these goals; specifically, OSCER will not be a "cycle farm." The services that OSCER will provide will address the needs of researchers in several OU Colleges, including but not limited to Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Geosciences and Medicine.
