November 1, 2000 -- The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) and OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) announced that OSC has acquired unlimited use of the NAG C, Fortran and Parallel Libraries for use on OSC’s high performance supercomputers.
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.
A new online publication unveiled this week, the Journal Of Computational Science Education (JOCSE), will publish peer-reviewed articles focusing on various aspects of teaching computational science – the application of computing, especially supercomputing, to the solution of complex scientific and engineering problems.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – June 7, 2006 – The world’s 8th annual Megaconference has been scheduled for November 8, 2006 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (EST). Anyone in the world using H.323 Internet videoconferencing is invited to submit a proposal for what organizers are now calling “interactions,” or interactive presentations.
Megaconference founder Dr. Robert Dixon said videoconferencing is an inherently interactive medium, and to encourage this concept the term “interaction” has been adopted to describe this feature of the Megaconference.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- October 22, 2008 -- Researchers have created a new material that overcomes two of the major obstacles to solar power: it absorbs all the energy contained in sunlight, and generates electrons in a way that makes them easier to capture.
Ohio State University chemists and their colleagues combined electrically conductive plastic with metals including molybdenum and titanium to create the hybrid material. This new material is the first that can absorb all the energy contained in visible light at once.
The Linworth Campus, Worthington Schools
The Linworth Campus of Worthington High School offers a Senior Walkabout Program that allows seniors who have met graduation requirements to use all or a portion of the second semester to test their skills and abilities in the adult world of work.
Professor Wen-mei Hwu to speak Feb. 21 as part of the Ohio Computational Science Lecture Series
Columbus, Ohio – January 28, 2008 – The Ohio Supercomputer Center Statewide Users Group and the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science present Wen-mei Hwu, Ph.D. as the next speaker for the Ohio Computational Science Lecture Series.
Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Executive Director Stan Ahalt’s Blue Collar Computing speech on high performance computing (HPC) for industry and research applications received enthusiastic support at the SC2004 conference in Pittsburgh, Pa., last week.
As more than 1,000 international audience members listened, Ahalt explained that HPC has reached a critical juncture as economic forces continue to shape its market segment.
Chen leverages Ohio Supercomputer Center resources to refine TURBO
Columbus, Ohio (Dec. 20, 2011) – For most of us, the word “turbomachinery” may conjure up images of superheroes or fast exotic cars, but in reality most people leverage turbomachinery to get things done nearly every day.
