Bridging the Gap Between Researchers and Resources

Introducing Syracuse University’s Cyberinfrastructure Engineer (CIE) Successful research requires a deep knowledge of one’s subject area and is often aided when the researcher is fluent with the available computing resources.  Without this working knowledge of...

Spring 2016 Colloquies & Deep-Dive Sessions

Duncan Brown, a world-renowned expert in gravitational wave astronomy and astrophysics, provided an overview of how OrangeGrid and Crush Computing infrastructure directly supported the multinational Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and its...

Press Conference: Searching for Gravitational Waves. A century after Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves, the National Science Foundation will gather scientists from Syracuse University, Caltech, MIT and the LIGO Scientific Collaboration to update the scientific community on efforts to detect them.

Gravitational Wave Announcement

SU’s Crush Powers NSF-funded LIGO Scientific Collaboration. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) installations in in Hanford Washington and Livingston Louisiana completed their first and long-awaited “observing run”. This 106-day run dubbed “O1” concluded on January 12, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific standard time. The result? Data. Lots of data.

From our researchers

We used OrangeGrid to conduct many simulations of biological tissues. This simulation data helped us to make an exciting prediction about cells in the lungs of asthma patients.

Associate Professor, Physics, Syracuse University

OrangeGrid is a phenomenal resource and opens up a whole new range of computational problems that we can address… The more computational resources we have the more science we can do, that’s the bottom line.

Duncan Brown

Associate Professor of Physics, Syracuse University

With the help of the ITS staff who manage the Campus Grid, we have been able to accomplish some things that I was not anticipating when I started my position here.
