HPC Advisory Council and the International Supercomputing Conference announce Call for Submissions for HPCAC-ISC 2013 Student Cluster Challenge

13 Aug 2012 Sunnyvale - The HPC Advisory Council (HPCAC), an organisation for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, and the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC), are planning the return and expansion of the widely successful HPCAC-ISC Student Cluster Competition in next year's ISC'13 programme of events. In a real-time challenge, 9 teams of undergraduate students will build a small cluster of their own design on the ISC'13 exhibit floor and race to demonstrate the greatest performance across a series of benchmarks and applications.

"The HPCAC-ISC Student Cluster Competition is designed to introduce the next generation of students to the international high-performance computing community, and we are pleased to be able to expand the number of competing teams from 5 to 9", stated Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. "This is an excellent educational opportunity for students around the world to showcase their knowledge and skillsets and to engage with leading commercial vendors. We look forward to continuing our work with the ISC team to produce a very competitive and fun challenge for all involved."

"The HPCAC-ISC Student Cluster Competition is an opportunity to showcase our brightest students' expertise in a friendly, yet spirited competition", stated Dr. Hans Werner Meuer, ISC General Chair. "We look forward to working with the HPC Advisory Council and are excited to, once again, host this very engaging competition at next year's ISC'13."

Submissions are open now with detailed information on the HPC Advisory Council website, as well the ISC'13 web site. Team preparation prior to the competition includes working with supervisors and vendor partners to design and build a winning cluster from commercially available components not exceeding power limit, and to learn the predetermined HPC applications. For more information, sponsorship and general questions you can e-mail at scc@isc-events.com
