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.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is looking for high school freshmen and sophomores interested in investigating how advances in high performance computing and networking may change the way we work, play, shop and learn in the next century.
World history books are filled with the names and ideas of great thinkers -- Aristotle, Benjamin Franklin, Sigmund Freud, Peter Drucker, and now...ECLIPS?! According to Policy.com, an online resource, the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) Technology Policy Group is officially a national think tank where issues like electronic commerce, policy, and law are concerned.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present Collaborations for the 21st Century -- a showcase of projects setting the tone for Ohio's future in high performance computing and communications -- at SC98: High Performance Networking and Computing, Nov. 7-13, in Orlando.
Ten years is a decent amount of time by most people's standards, but for an organization to be involved in the high performance computing industry that long it's more like celebrating a century rather than a decade.
The few have been chosen.
Sixteen students from across Ohio will soon take a two-week journey called "Adventures in Virtual Worlds" during the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Summer Institute, July 13-24 at the supercomputer center.
The program, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, gives academically-outstanding high school freshman and sophomores a rare opportunity to step into the world of high performance computing and networking.
Is two better than one? It is when you're combining two of the state's best resources. The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and OhioLINK offer Ohio's colleges and universities state-of-the-art computing, networking, and information programs that lead the nation in cost-effective delivery of high-quality services. Together, they offer a powerful problem-solving environment. Ohio has great potential as an information state with these two shared resources.
Just like trends in clothing, cars change their look and design rapidly with the times.
In recent years, the number of pickup trucks, passenger vans, and sport utility vehicles seen on US highways has grown substantially. Recent crash testing by the Federal Highway Administration indicates that these types of cars may be more prone to overturn when crashing into guardrails on US highways.
Why does a second Internet need to be created? Ask 10 researchers and policymakers across the nation and you may receive 10 different answers. One important answer lies in the health and well-being of Americans.
Many advances in medicine depend on advances in technology, including virtual reality, computer simulations, and a faster Internet. Researchers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus will demonstrate their recent work at the Spring Internet 2 (I2) Member meeting in Washington, DC, April 14-18.
The OSC Statewide Users Group, or SUG, connects OSC to the academic institutions in the state and provides a faculty and student viewpoint on OSC's operations.
Interaction among users is central to the advancement of computational methods in all disciplines. As a SUG representative for Capital, Vakalis works with members from other Ohio institutions to offer OSC direction and advice to help the Center better serve users' needs.
SUG members are appointed by university presidents, provosts, and vice presidents upon recommendation by other OSC users.
