Columbus, Ohio - April 9, 2001-- A Johns Hopkins scientist recognized as one of the world's foremost experts in high performance computing has been recruited to give The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Public Health and OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) a leadership role in the new and rapidly expanding field of medical informatics.Dr. Joel H.
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, Ohio -- May 6, 2005 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has selected 18 of Ohio's middle-school girls to participate in its Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI) held on July 31-August 6, 2005 in Columbus.
YWSI is a weeklong program sponsored by OSC for middle-school girls in Ohio. It is designed to promote computer, math and science skills as well as provide hands-on experiences. YWSI helps girls develop an interest in these subjects by allowing them to work on a practical, interesting scientific problem using the latest computer technology.
Columbus, Ohio -- June 10, 1999 -- The explosion of the Internet changed the way the world does business. It has affected the way we hire employees, transfer medical records and make sales transactions.
In addition, advances in technology outpace current practice, law and regulation. For firms, this endangers valuable proprietary data. Meanwhile, consumers may have private information exposed without their knowledge.
Itanium 2-based Supercomputer Running Linux to be Used by Ohio Universities and Private Industry
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Oct. 21, 2002 -- HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced that the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will deploy an HP supercomputer based on a cluster of more than 150 Intel® Itanium® 2-based HP Workstation zx6000 systems.
Columbus, Ohio – November 14, 2008 - Ohio’s academic and industrial researchers now can share some of the state’s most valuable and expensive scientific instruments via the Internet, thanks to cyberinfrastructure tools developed by engineers and researchers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center.
Windows On The Future provides a forum in which academic institutions, research centers, corporate laboratories and government agencies can share knowledge, exchange ideas, and form networking relationships that will collectively benefit Ohio's higher education and industrial communities. This conference will focus on technology briefings by leading researchers in areas such as Internet engineering, networking, communications, and technology development.
Columbus, Ohio -- March 12, 1996 -- Ohio Supercomputer Center has released LAM 6.0, a major upgrade of its MPI implementation for UNIX-based clusters. The software is freely available from http://www.osc.edu/lam.html.
Among the new features in LAM 6.0 are an early implementation of MPI, process spawning, dynamic processor resources and fault tolerance.
LAM 6.0 runs out-of-the-box on IP networks connecting any of the major vendors' workstations in any combination. LINUX is also supported.
Humphrey to tackle artificial intelligence, control systems at Air Force Research Lab
Columbus, Ohio – August 19, 2009 – Laura Humphrey thought that assisting researchers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center while she pursued her Ph.D. at The Ohio State University might be more rewarding than serving as a graduate teaching associate.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), along with three state medical centers, has received $350,000 for pediatric cancer research as part of the federal FY2004 Omnibus Appropriations bill.
This grant will be used to apply new techniques developed at the National Cancer Institute's Advanced Biomedical Computing Center (NCI-ABCC) to the study of children's diseases. Research results will accelerate the insight and understanding of cancer, leading to improved diagnostics, treatments and even new prevention options.
The National Computational Science Institute (NCSI) will offer an introductory workshop entitled, "Introduction to Computational Science Modeling and Simulation in the Undergraduate Environment." The workshop will be held on June 16-22 at OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center), located on The Ohio State University campus.
