What's New at the Platform Lab!

Platform Lab received and installed an important contribution from Sun Microsystems, Inc. as the lab opened its doors for operation. The contribution includes four enterprise-level Sun 220R dual processor systems, each with two gigabytes of memory, a pair of Sun Netra web application servers, and significant disk storage capacity.

These systems provide mid-range enterprise-level computing capacity and are available to users of the new facility. The estimated value of the contribution is in excess of $100,000.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Calls for Proposals for Statewide Computational Science Courses

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is looking for Ohio faculty interested in using distance learning technologies to bring computational science courses to campuses across the state.

OSC, a statewide resource for high performance technology, recently received funding from the Ohio Board of Regents to assist the state in developing computational science expertise at its public universities. OSC will fund computational science courses from various institutions that can be taught on multiple campuses.

Science, engineering students developing HPC programming skills through Great Lakes Consortium Virtual School summer course

Graduate students – from various disciplines and institutions across the country – are improving their multi-core programming skills this week during a summer school course offered by the Great Lakes Consortium’s Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering.

Register now for SC07/Ohio Supercomputer Center workshop on integrating computational science into curricula

Both businesses and researchers increasingly are using computational science to enhance their return on investments and discovery methods. Faculty wishing to incorporate this discipline into their coursework are invited to attend the workshop, “Integrating Computational Science into the Undergraduate Curriculum,” June 17 to 23, 2007, at the Ohio Supercomputer Center, Columbus, Ohio.

Cluster Ohio Proposal Deadline Extended

 

To promote parallel computing among Ohio faculty, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), its Statewide Users Group, and the Ohio Board of Regents are soliciting a third round of Cluster Ohio faculty research proposals. OSC will distribute Athlon AMD computer system clusters -- complete with hardware, software programming environment, and maintenance -- to this year’s Cluster Ohio awardees. Proposals are due on January 14, 2004.
