Spring 2024 Research Computing Series

The Research Computing Series is a great opportunity to learn about the resources available to faculty, staff and students. The Spring 2024 Research Computing Series will feature two sessions.

The April 10 session will feature a presentation by Collin Capano, director of the Open Source Project Office (OSPO). Established in November 2023 with funding from a Sloan Foundation grant, the OSPO is dedicated to promoting open research initiatives and fostering open-source code development at Syracuse University. This talk will provide an overview of the OSPO’s purpose, current projects, and future objectives. Talk attendees will also be invited to contribute suggestions for shaping its forthcoming endeavors. Join the conversation as the OSPO endeavors to enhance collaboration and innovation within our academic community and build an open-source culture at Syracuse!

The April 17 session will showcase insights from the ITS Research Computing team, focusing on recent enhancements to campus resources that are available to researchers across the research landscape. Topics will include a discussion on the augmentation of compute capacities, refinements in documentation and a concise review of cluster resources. The session will also feature spotlights on the HTC OrangeGrid cluster and the updated and highly anticipated new HPC Zest cluster, illustrating how these developments bolster the computational infrastructure available to the community.

Fall 2023 Research Computing Series

The Research Computing Series is a great opportunity to learn about the resources available to faculty, staff and students. The Fall 2023 Research Computing Series featured two sessions.

The first session shone a spotlight on postdoctoral research at Syracuse University. Physics postdoctoral research associate Raj Kumar Manna discussed how he leverages University computing resources in his research on self-organization in living matter and soft-matter systems. Currently, Manna’s work involves identifying biophysical mechanisms and quantifying forces that contribute to cell shape changes in a developing organ (Kupffer’s vesicle) of the zebrafish embryo.

The second session featured David Aja, a solutions engineer from Posit, a leading data science company providing support for R and other open-source and cloud-based products. Aja will share how researchers with varying levels of R experience can take advantage of Slurm and HTCondor clusters available to faculty and students engaged in academic research.
