Student Cluster Competition at ISC'20

Jun 09, 2020

Due to the current corona pandemic, the ISC'20 (International Supercomputing High Performance) will take place from June 22nd to 25th,2020, as a virtual conference. Thus, also the student cluster competition (SCC), which is traditionally held at the ISC, will take place in remote form as an online competition.

Fourteen student teams from all over the world compete against each other in a three-week online competition running June 1–24. The student teams will be tasked to configure, code, and benchmark a series of high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) applications. Joining the global fight against COVID-19, several applications being used by scientists and researchers for fighting the virus will additionally have to be tested by the students.

The team of the University of Hamburg has qualified again and is one of three German teams participating in the competition. The students are supervised by members of the group “Scientific Computing” and are supported by the Gauss Center for Supercomputing (GCS) both financially and in terms of content. Utilizing the supercomputing platforms kindly provided by the National Supercomputing Center Singapore, identical conditions will apply to all teams.
