Press Releases

Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation press release:

The Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation has awarded access to the Blue Waters supercomputer—which is capable of performing quadrillions of calculations every second and of working with quadrillions of bytes of data—to 10 diverse science and engineering projects.

The computing and data capabilities of Blue Waters will assist researchers in addressing questions of biology, nanoelectronics, ecological and economic impacts of climate change, and more.

A University of Cincinnati physicist has traveled to the site of the world’s largest physics experiment, the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, to teach programmers there how to write complex science code on an Ohio supercomputer that leverages computer chips originally created to power modern video games.  

Columbus, Ohio (Nov. 30, 2012) – Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Jim Petro recently appointed Pankaj Shah as executive director of the Ohio Supercomputer Center.

Shah concurrently serves as the executive director of the Ohio Academic Resources Network (OARnet), a role he’s held since 2005. By leading both technology organizations in their independent missions, Shah will seek closer collaboration between the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and OARnet, creating new opportunities from their combined efforts.
