Academic research provides students and staff alike the ability to pursue ground-breaking discoveries in numerous fields of study. These findings are propelled by Ohio universities’ access to high performance computing (HPC) through the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). Many of the state’s researchers gathered at OSC for the biannual Statewide Users Group (SUG) conference on Thursday to share their current research and innovations that have used HPC.
An Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) staff member will be serving as a mentor to a colleague from Wofford College as they work to boost a federal program aimed at expanding a capable and innovative advanced digital resource workforce across the country.
A paper authored by staff members of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) earned best paper honors in the Facilitation of Advanced Research Computing track at the Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing Conference (PEARC), being held July 28–Aug. 1 in Chicago.
While the impressive breakthroughs from Ohio’s leading research universities stem from the brilliant minds of students and faculty, the discoveries are greatly accelerated through the use of high perfo
An NSF-funded pilot program led by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) seeks to grow the country’s research workforce with individuals trained in computational and data science, particularly through curriculum taught at institutions faced with resource limitations and focused on minority inclusion.
Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor John Carey recently appointed David E. Hudak, Ph.D., as the fourth permanent executive director of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).
Hudak previously served as interim executive director of OSC, a charter member of ODHE’s Ohio Technology Consortium, located on the west campus of The Ohio State University.
Columbus, Ohio (July 12, 2018) – The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Karen Tomko, Ph.D., and the University of Illinois/Urbana’s Robert Dodds, Ph.D., recently wrapped up a project that will greatly enhance the simulation capabilities of manufacturing engineers.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center is in the process of procuring a new high performance computing system this summer, and in line with its tradition of naming its systems after pioneers with an Ohio connection, the center looked to its earliest days.
Russell M. Pitzer, the honoree and now emeritus professor of chemistry at The Ohio State University, was among a few individuals who began discussing the possibility of bringing high performance computing to Ohio higher education, even before the center was established in 1987.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio Supercomputer Center played a critical role in helping researchers reach a milestone mapping the growth of the universe from its infancy to present day.
The new results released Aug. 3 confirm the surprisingly simple but puzzling theory that the present universe is composed of only 4 percent ordinary matter, 26 percent mysterious dark matter, and the remaining 70 percent in the form of mysterious dark energy, which causes the accelerating expansion of the universe.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center recently displayed the power of its new Owens Cluster by running the single-largest scale calculation in the Center’s history.
Scientel IT Corp used 16,800 cores of the Owens Cluster on May 24 to test database software optimized to run on supercomputer systems. The seamless run created 1.25 Terabytes of synthetic data.
