Imagine being a node operator for an Access Grid event when the presenter's voice echoes. What should you do? Could the microphone be too close to the audio speaker? Learn about troubleshooting Access Grid audio with assistance from the latest in a series of online tutorials for the Access Grid.
Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Senior Scientist Moti Mittal has been awarded a grant by the United States Agency For International Development (USAID) for his research on transporting air pollutants from energy activities in India.
OSC is excited to host the 45th Cray User Group Conference (CUG 2003) on May 12-16, at the Hyatt on Capital Square. CUG 2003 will allow Cray users from all over the world to exchange problem-solving information and enjoy professional interactions with fellow Cray users.
This year's conference is unique because it will showcase the highly anticipated Cray X1 System. "Flight to Insight," the CUG 2003 theme, was chosen to honor Ohio's rich heritage and multiple contributions to the aerospace industry and world of technological insight and innovation.

The ADEC Bill Murphy Barrier Buster Award was presented to the National Science Foundation Technology and Application Team for its work associated with the implementation of multicast and the National Videoconference on April 2, 2003. The award was presented at the All ADEC Meeting May 1-2, 2003, in San Antonio.
OSC's High Performance Computing (HPC) Division announces that Itanium computing clusters have been awarded to five Ohio higher education institutions. Nineteen researchers submitted proposals in the competition for academic cluster computers.
Faculty researchers were encouraged to submit proposals that highlighted cluster-style parallel computing, shared scientific visualization tools, and distributed network computation applications.
The Third Frontier Network (TFN), along with the Cincinnati Education Research Fiber Loop (CERF), will help create the nation’s most advanced research network. Eventually, TFN and CERF will serve libraries, hospitals, cultural institutions, and corporate research communities.
Ohio research groups participated in OSC’s Introduction to Bioinformatics Tools Workshop held on February 21 at OSC’s new BALE facility and through remote video streaming.
The course provided an overview of OSC’s resources including software packages and publicly available databases, statewide licensed products from LabBook, hands-on tutorials, functional capabilities of the TimeLogic DeCypher Genomic Accelerators, and more.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UCSD has been selected by Internet2 as a national Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC). The mission of the center will be to test and evaluate leading-edge technologies for high-performance Internet2 networks—working with developers to test and refine network hardware and software for optimal end-to-end network performance up to 10 gigabits per second. Internet2 is a consortium led by more than 200 U.S. universities, working with industry and government to develop and deploy advanced Internet applications and technologies.
