The initiative, known as AweSim, is designed to provide the benefits of modelling and simulation to small and mid-sized manufacturers. The $6.4 million public/private initiative is funded through the State of Ohio's Third Frontier Commission and through investments by programme partners P&G, Intel, AltaSim Technologies, TotalSim USA, Kinetic Vision and Nimbis Services. OSC has organized an evening reception in Denver for current and potential new collaborators on the AweSim programme.
A member of the Ohio Board of Regents' Ohio Technology Consortium, OSC is internationally recognized for providing innovative supercomputer resources, training and staff support to a wide array of academic, government and private industry research projects. That expertise has been shared throughout the week at SC13, as OSC experts were presenting on topics related to the centre's collaborations in higher education and signature research programmes.
Additionally, Kevin Wohlever, OSC interim director of supercomputing operations, and Steve Gordon worked on the SC13 planning committee, and Patricia Carey, a senior systems developer and engineer at OSC, received a grant through the SC13 Broader Engagement Programme to attend the conference.
