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.

Fall 2015 Research Community Computing Colloquies

The diverse array of campus computing resources available to SU’s researchers was created to take on new and greater computational tasks, enhance research productivity, increase the competitiveness of grant submissions, and advance scientific discovery across many disciplines. Information Technology Services (ITS), in collaboration with the Research Computing Advisory Council (RCAC), will host a series of Computing Colloquies designed to help campus researchers identify and make the most of these resources.
