(Sept. 30, 2016) – The National Science Foundation has awarded a consortium of 28 collaborating institutions, including the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and led by Clemson University, a $750,000 grant to fund a Research Coordination Network to set up a national forum for the exchange and dissemination of best practices, expertise and technologies to enable the advancement of campus-based research computing activities.
Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio Supercomputer Center has launched OnDemand 3.0, a vastly upgraded version of its “one-stop shop” for access to its High Performance Computing services.
This latest version of OSC’s custom-built OnDemand web portal is the first to be based on Open OnDemand, an NSF-funded OSC project to develop an open-source web portal providing advanced web and graphical interfaces for HPC centers.
When life-threatening weather events loom, forecasters warn citizens days, even weeks, beforehand so they can take action. It seems to work: We clear supermarket shelves, board up windows and even evacuate to higher ground ahead of the impending tempest to avoid danger.
In February, NASA announced it would move forward with its Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) mission, which will study a broad set of scientific investigations. For the past five years, researchers from Ohio State, whose own research has been buoyed by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, have been on NASA’s Science Definition Team for the preliminary study of WFIRST, set to launch in the mid-2020s. Find out how OSC is supporting this historic research and what it could mean for the future of space exploration.
Having set collegiate athletics afire a year earlier with four world records set or tied in a single day, Jesse Owens sprinted to four gold medals and two Olympic records at the 1936 Berlin Games and refuted the Nazi notion of Aryan racial superiority.
Leaders from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) met with five senior members of the Beijing Computing Center (BCC) and Comet Solutions, Inc. at the Ohio Technology Consortium facility Wednesday afternoon to discuss challenges, share history and look to the future of app development at a high-performance computing organization.
In a very significant way, Rodney Richardson has found a key that is unlocking some powerful insight into how we can help sustain the lives of our planet’s pollinators.
In 2014, the Ohio State University graduate student adapted his previous experience using Ohio Supercomputer Center resources for bioinformatics studies to his current research on honey bee foraging and the result could throw open the doors for this particular area of study.
