Since its founding in 1987, OSC has remained on the forefront of technology by continually upgrading and launching new high performance computing resources while expanding its services to an array of academic disciplines and industries. As Ohio focuses on heightening its scientific capabilities and workforce development strategies to ensure its economic success, OSC is becoming an even more critical state resource.

Continuing a long tradition of leadership in the field, Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) staff participated in and helped plan three large research computing-focused conferences this fall, advancing and learning from the national conversation in high performance computing (HPC).

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is a project partner in the National Science Foundation-funded Artificial Intelligence (AI) Institute for Intelligent Cyberinfrastructure with Computational Learning in the Environment (ICICLE) and will host an All Hands Meeting Nov. 2-3.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) leadership and staff have played a significant role in the national Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) Conference Series, the latest in a series of conferences beginning in 2006 to address the changing needs of the advanced cyberinfrastructure community.

A broad array of researchers, developers, system administrators and students who share an interest in the MVAPICH open-source library for high performance computing will gather at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Monday, Aug. 22, through Wednesday, Aug. 24, for the 10th meeting of the MVAPICH Users Group (MUG).
