SC16 explores reproducibility for advanced computing through Student Cluster Competition
16 Mar 2016 Delaware - Michela Taufer explains on the SC16 blog the challenges for the Student Cluster Competition. She is part of a small team at SC16 that over the next several years will work to promote and support replication and reproducibility of computational results. One of the approaches the team is exploring is to use SC's Student Cluster Competition (SCC) to test the reproducibility of results presented in papers at previous SC conferences. This is the first time that students have been challenged to reproduce results from a recent computational paper rather than run more traditional benchmark applications, says Taufer.
