Press Releases

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- May 19, 2004 -- The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced that the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) would receive $650,000 to provide technical leadership and program management to Mississippi State University (MSU) as it develops and improves high performance computing systems for the military. OSC will also receive $1.35 million to provide technical support in Signal Image Processing and Integrated Modeling and Test Environments.

“This tutorial is unique in a number of ways,” said Dr. David Ennis, PACS Course Development Leader and Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Systems Developer. “Rather than present a list of available libraries, we have structured the course by common mathematical problems and topics.”

Cincinnati, OH — April 26, 2004 — The Third Frontier Network (TFN) will make Ohio a world leader in using technologically advanced networking to improve health care research and education, as demonstrated today at the University of Cincinnati (UC) Genome Research Institute (GRI). TFN will support medical research collaborators as they identify and treat diseases.

TFN-connected Ohio hospitals and medical research labs will be able to share medical images and collaborate on research, education, and service programs.

For decades, high performance computing (HPC) researchers have struggled with low-level programming environments to exploit parallel computers.

Four Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) employees, as well as two Ohio State University (OSU) plant biology researchers, had a manuscript published in the online journal, Plant Physiology. The manuscript was entitled, “Genome-wide Identification of Arabidopsis Coiled-coil Proteins and Establishment of the ARABI-COIL Database.”

On April 19-20 and May 3-4, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present a Basic UNIX and Intermediate UNIX workshop, respectively, at Clark State Community College in Springfield, Ohio. There is no charge to attend, and members from the community, area businesses, and higher education institutions are invited.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is opening a new facility in Springfield that will add 30 high-tech jobs over the next two years. The center will help anchor a new research park and act as a catalyst for building a technology corridor between the Springfield-Dayton area and Central Ohio.

Ohio will soon have some high-tech bragging rights when the Third Frontier Network (TFN) is lit this summer. After nearly two years of development, nearly 100 institutions of higher education and thousands of primary and secondary schools throughout the state will have access to the nation’s most advanced statewide education and research network.

Ohio is positioned to become a national leader in networking and computing technologies with the deployment of the country’s first statewide fiber optic network for education and research. Called the Third Frontier Network, this new technology initiative of the Ohio Board of Regents is operated by OARnet, the Internet services division of the Ohio Supercomputer Center.

Chemists at The Ohio State University and their colleagues may have settled a 70-year-old scientific debate on the fundamental nature of ice.

A new statistical analysis mechanical theory has confirmed what some scientists only suspected before: that under the right conditions, molecules of water can freeze together in just the right way to form a perfect crystal. And once frozen, that ice can be manipulated by electric fields in the same way that magnets respond to magnetic fields.
