Denver calling for Student Cluster Competition
1 March 2013Tweet
Team submissions are now being accepted for the SC13 edition of the Student Cluster Competition, an event featuring young supercomputing talent from around the world competing to build and operate powerful cluster computers.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 12 April. SC13, the leading international conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, will be held from 17 to 22 November in Denver.
Created as an opportunity to showcase student expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition, the Student Cluster Competition aims to introduce the next generation of students to the high-performance computing community.
Over the last couple of years, the competition has drawn teams from around the world, including Canada, China, Costa Rica, Germany, Russia, Taiwan and the United States.
In this real-time, non-stop, 48-hour competition, teams of undergraduate and/or high school students assemble small cluster computers on the SC13 exhibit floor and race to demonstrate the greatest sustained performance across a series of applications.
