UL – Lafayette has been the recipient of Access Grid equipment from the Louisiana Board of Regents. Access Grid is an ensemble of resources including multimedia large-format displays, presentation and interactive environments, and interfaces to Grid middleware and to visualization environments. These resources support group-to-group interactions across the Grid.
UL – Lafayette was able to participate in a series of SuperComputing seminars via the Access Grid. The classes took place over an eight-week period with students and faculty from around the country coming together with the express purpose of learning more about SuperComputing.
Additionally, Media Services has provided a medium through which University departments can participate in seminars via the web, saving thousands of dollars in travel and lodging fees.
