Ohio Supercomputer Center in seach of name for newest supercomputer system


7 Oct 2015 Columbus - Engineers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) have just launched the Ruby Cluster and are now planning to build a newer, even more powerful system in the 2015-16 academic year. The new supercomputer will help researchers in their quest to make amazing discoveries and important innovations. What the new supercomputer can't do, though, is give itself a name. That's why the Ohio Supercomputer Center is asking to submit ideas to name the newest system.

OSC leaders will choose a name from the top ten entries. The winner will win a small tablet computer and K-12 students can compete for another tablet and a expert presentation about supercomputers.

The name should:

  • Reflect a strong connection to the State of Ohio.

This can be a person who lived, worked, performed or otherwise developed a reputation that is related to the Buckeye State. To keep things simple, the name should preferably be that of a historical figure rather than a living person.

  • Communicate a positive, innovative and pioneering spirit.

In the recent past, OSC has named systems after astronauts John Glenn and Neil Armstrong, sharpshooter and social activist Annie Oakley, computer artist Charles "Chuck" Csuri and actress and civil rights activist Ruby Dee.

  • Be easily pronounced and understood.

OSC will be talking and writing about the new system hundreds of times each day.

  • Be one-of-a-kind.

The name must distinguish the system from named systems at OSC and other supercomputer centres, so that it's not confusing when OSC talks with its clients and colleagues.

Ideas can be submitted at https://www.osc.edu/hpc_name .
