OSC

Since 1987, OSC has been providing our clients services in four areas, or functions:

Supercomputing. OSC provides the computational power and storage that scientists need to meet their research goals.  Whether researchers need to harness the incredible power of a parallel processor cluster to better understand deep space, a vector processor machine to do weather modeling, or a mid-size shared memory processor system to model the human heart, OSC has the hardware and software solutions to meet their needs.

Research. A staff of high performance computing and networking research experts maintain active research programs in HPC and Networking, Homeland Security and Defense, Environmental Sciences, Engineering and Life Sciences. Our goals are to lead science and engineering research efforts, assist researchers with custom needs and collaborate with regional, national and international researchers in groundbreaking initiatives.

Education. OSC has a national reputation for its training and education programs. Staff teach faculty and student researchers through scientific computing workshops, one-on-one classes, and web-based portal training. Ohio students gain exposure to the world of high performance computing and networking during our annual summer institutes for young women in middle school and for junior and senior high school students. And, the statewide, virtual Ralph Regula School of Computational Science coordinates computational science and engineering education activities for all levels of learning.

Cyberinfrastructure. The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development researchers provide the user community with various high performance computing software options. This variety enables researchers to select parallel computing languages they most prefer, and just as important, it creates a test bed for exploring these systems. By taking a holistic approach to generating efficient supercomputing applications for researchers, the Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development research capitalizes on all the components within the cycle of innovation — development, experimentation, and analysis - and continuously improves the services provided.

OSC Announces YWSI 2003 Middle School Participants

Columbus, Ohio -- May 28, 2003 -- Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has announced that 18 of Ohio's middle-school girls have been selected to participate in its Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI) on July 27-August 2, 2003.

YWSI is a week-long program sponsored by OSC for middle-school girls in Ohio. It is designed to promote computer, math, and science skills as well as provide hands-on experiences. YWSI helps girls develop an interest in these subjects by allowing them to work on a practical, interesting scientific problem using the latest computer technology.

President Emeritus to Address Education Group in Vietnam

Columbus, Ohio -- July 28, 1995 -- Edward H. Jennings, president emeritus and finance professor at The Ohio State University, will discuss the framework for the United States' higher education system at a seminar in Hanoi, Vietnam Aug. 1-3.

Jennings, who was president of Ohio State from 1981-1990, will address a group of officials from the Vietnamese higher education system and education department at the seminar, which is sponsored by the Midwest Universities Consortium for International Activities, Inc. (MUCIA).
