OSC at SC13: An AweSim Presence

Last week, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) introduced its new industrial engagement initiative at SC13, the premier international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, held this year in Denver, Colo.

The initiative, known as AweSim, is designed to provide the benefits of modeling and simulation to small and mid-sized manufacturers. The $6.4 million public/private initiative is funded through the State of Ohio’s Third Frontier Commission and through investments by program partners P&G, Intel, AltaSim Technologies, TotalSim USA, Kinetic Vision and Nimbis Services. 

Collaboration was a prevalent theme at the conference, and AweSim drew widespread interest from media. The coverage included a couple of articles with national reach, especially from the Associated Press and ComputerWorld (see below).
