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.
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.
Date: Monday, 10/21/02
Time: 5:30 - 7:00 PM
Place: OSC, 1224 Kinnear Rd, Columbus, OH, 43212
COLUMBUS, Ohio and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) and SGI (NYSE: SGI) announce the launch of a new cluster from SGI utilizing the Itanium-based Silicon Graphics® 750 system, making this cluster one of the fastest in the world.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present Collaborations for the 21st Century -- a showcase of projects setting the tone for Ohio's future in high performance computing and communications -- at SC98: High Performance Networking and Computing, Nov. 7-13, in Orlando.
Software development specialists at the Ohio Supercomputer Center have released Local Area Multiprocessor (LAM) to the parallel processing and cluster computing community. LAM has been ported to several leading UNIX machines such as Sun, SGI, RS/6000, DEC APX and to Cray running UNICOS. LAM is freely available under a GNU license via anonymous ftp from tbag.osc.edu or from gopher at gopher.osc.edu. URL is gopher: //gopher.osc.edu:70/Software/Trollius.
OSC, in cooperation with the University of Toledo and the Edison Industrial Systems Center will host a meeting in Toledo on September 30, from 9:30 to 2:30 on the applications of computing technology to product design and manufacturing process flows. A followup meeting will be held on October 21 at the same location to discuss possible research agendas that will be produced using information from the first meeting.
If you plan to present poster exhibits at SC99, please remember that submissions are due by Friday, August 6.
Poster presentations at SC99 should describe results and experiences related to high performance networking and computing. These exhibits offer researchers an opportunity to present their results informally and to talk with conference attendees about their work.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) takes delivery today of a 32 processor CRAY T3D -- an entry-level massively parallel processing (MPP) system. The system will be closely coupled with a CRAY Y-MP2E parallel vector supercomputer system installed at the same time. The new CRAY system fits well into OSC's existing CRAY Y-MP8/864 and Y-MP-EL/332 computing environment.
