CSE has become sophisticated enough to take its place alongside observation and theory.
Most students – and most faculty and staff – don’t learn much CSE, because it’s seen as needing too much computing background, and needs HPC, which is seen as very hard to learn.
HPC be hard to learn: few materials for novices; most documentation written for experts as reference guides.
We need a new approach: HPC and CSE for computing novices – OSCER’s mandate!
