COLUMBUS, Ohio -- May 17, 2005. A team of technology experts from OARnet has won the "Outstanding Contribution to Technological Infrastructure" award presented by the American Distance Education Consortium (ADEC) at a ceremony in New Orleans on April 27.
Since 1987, OSC has been providing our clients services in four areas, or functions:
Supercomputing. OSC provides the computational power and storage that scientists need to meet their research goals. Whether researchers need to harness the incredible power of a parallel processor cluster to better understand deep space, a vector processor machine to do weather modeling, or a mid-size shared memory processor system to model the human heart, OSC has the hardware and software solutions to meet their needs.
Research. A staff of high performance computing and networking research experts maintain active research programs in HPC and Networking, Homeland Security and Defense, Environmental Sciences, Engineering and Life Sciences. Our goals are to lead science and engineering research efforts, assist researchers with custom needs and collaborate with regional, national and international researchers in groundbreaking initiatives.
Education. OSC has a national reputation for its training and education programs. Staff teach faculty and student researchers through scientific computing workshops, one-on-one classes, and web-based portal training. Ohio students gain exposure to the world of high performance computing and networking during our annual summer institutes for young women in middle school and for junior and senior high school students. And, the statewide, virtual Ralph Regula School of Computational Science coordinates computational science and engineering education activities for all levels of learning.
Cyberinfrastructure. The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development researchers provide the user community with various high performance computing software options. This variety enables researchers to select parallel computing languages they most prefer, and just as important, it creates a test bed for exploring these systems. By taking a holistic approach to generating efficient supercomputing applications for researchers, the Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development research capitalizes on all the components within the cycle of innovation — development, experimentation, and analysis - and continuously improves the services provided.
Columbus, OH - April 4, 2005 --The Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI) deadline has been extended to April 15. This is also the announced deadline for OSC's Summer Institute (SI).
Sponsored by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and Kent State University, YWSI is a weeklong program for Ohio's middle-school girls. It is designed to promote computer, math, and science skills as well as provide hands-on learning.
Columbus, Ohio – September 22, 2008 – Ohio Supercomputer Center officials today announced that the Center has entered into an agreement with Nimbis Services Inc. to connect regional industry supply chains to OSC’s Blue Collar Computing computational and expertise resources.
OSC and NIMBIS have partnered to achieve the following:
OSU project adapts Supramap program from earlier study of avian influenza
Columbus, Ohio – May 7, 2009 - An Ohio State University Medical Center biomedical informatics researcher is tapping the power of the Ohio Supercomputer Center to monitor the spread of the H1N1 influenza virus.
Supercomputer Center to Advise Legislature on Issues Concerning Net
Columbus, Ohio -- April 1, 1999 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center recently was appointed to the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee, which provides guidance to more than 100 Senators and Representatives who are examining Internet-related policy issues before Congress. OSC is the only Ohio higher education entity serving on the Committee.
Columbus, Ohio -- The Cold War may be over, but the need for well-trained government scientists and engineers lives on. The Ohio Supercomputer Center is helping the federal government keep its cadre of high performance computing specialists current on state of the art computers. And it's doing it right here in Ohio.
Columbus, Ohio -- February 8, 1994 -- As a part of The Ohio State University Summer Institute, fifteen students will have the chance to work with Ohio's supercomputer - a computer normally reserved for professional scientists and engineers! Summer Institute attracts gifted and talented students to Columbus each summer for two weeks of exciting and challenging learning.
Worthington Kilbourne, Thomas Worthington High School Students will Participate from OSC Headquarters
Columbus, Ohio (September 4, 2009) – As college students return to classes for the fall term, many are looking for any financial assistance that might be available. For those studying a combination of biology, computer science and information technology – a field known as bioinformatics – there are significant scholarships still available.
Ohio Third Frontier Commission recommends $2.1 million to establish center
Youngstown, Ohio – July 8, 2008 – The Ohio Third Frontier Commission has awarded Youngstown State University with a $2.1 million grant to establish a Center for Excellence in Advanced Materials Analyses in collaboration with Fireline TCON Inc. and the Ohio Supercomputer Center. The project will focus on research, analyses, modeling and commercialization of products with increased resistance to thermal shock and lower thermal conductivity.
