To promote parallel computing among Ohio faculty, OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) is soliciting a second round of faculty research proposals. OSC will distribute Itanium (64-bit) systems to winning participants.
"OSC wants to create an environment for faculty members who are willing to port or develop software for parallel systems. To do this, OSC will provide a number of cluster systems to awardees," said Leslie Southern, Interim HPC Director. "We are looking for faculty proposals on software development for clusters of Itanium-based computer systems."
