The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is introducing a new industrial engagement initiative next week at SC13, thepremier international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, being held Nov. 17-22 in Denver, Colo.

Marcio Faerman, a scientific research manager at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), recently received a $10,000 grant from a joint partnership between The Ohio State University and the Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

Faerman’s research, one of 24 projects awarded under this new program, focuses on the beginning stages of building a digital bridge for research collaboration between OSU and the Sao Paulo campuses. Ohio State and FAPESP are each contributing $700,000 to begin the five-year program to support research and innovation.

Patricia Carey, a senior systems developer and engineer at The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), has received a grant to fund her travel to SC13, the annual conference of the international supercomputing community, and her participation in the conference’s weeklong technical program.


The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) hosted the first meeting of the MVAPICH Users Group, a broad array of users, system administrators, researchers, engineers and students who share an interest in the MVAPICH open-source library of communications standards used internally by many high performance computing (HPC) systems.

Engineers from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) have developed an innovative access mechanism that is helping researchers to bridge the chasm between the convenience of a web interface and the complexity of high performance computing systems.

Fifteen middle school girls from around the state will be attending the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s 14th annual Young Women’s Summer Institute at The Ohio State University on July 7-13, 2013.

These academically gifted young women will investigate environmental watershed issues within the state, while exploring career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.


A team of academic and business organizations, mostly from Ohio, won an award for the “Best Application for Advanced Manufacturing” at the Next Generation Application Summit.
