OSC Showcases Initiatives at International Supercomputing Conference

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will showcase its Blue Collar Computing and Third Frontier Network (TFN) initiatives by highlighting these projects and more at Supercomputing 2005 (SC|05). A week-long international supercomputing conference, SC|05 is the world's leading event for high performance computing and research, and is a hotbed of collaboration opportunities. The conference will be held at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle, Washington, on November 12-18.

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.

OSC-Hosted CUG Conference a Success

The 45th Annual Cray User Group Conference held on May 12-16, 2003 and hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), was deemed a success by more than 160 attendees.

CUG2003 was held at the Hyatt on Capitol Square in downtown Columbus.

This year’s theme, “Flight to Insight,” was chosen to honor Ohio’s rich heritage and numerous contributions to the aerospace industry. The conference also highlighted the centennial anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ flight.
