SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 8, 2018 — The HPC-AI Advisory Council (HPCAIAC), a for community-benefit organization promoting HPC and AI education, along with the ISC Group, organizers of Europe’s premier HPC forum, today announced the open call for team entries for the 2019 ISC-HPCAIAC Student Cluster Competition (SCC). Teams of up to six students, currently enrolled in four-year higher education and undergraduate-degree programs, can submit proposals for the 2019 competition through November 9, 2018. Organizers will announce team selections November 15, 2018 and host a total of twelve teams in Germany, June 17-19, 2019 during the 34th annual ISC High Performance Conference and Exhibition.
In its eighth year, the three day international competition draws teams from all over the world. To take top honors teams must demonstrate a system of their own design, adhere to strict power constraints and achieve the highest performance across a series of standard benchmarks and applications.
“Supporting student development in this highly challenging field is extremely beneficial,” said Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC-AI Advisory Council. “Students come away from competitions steeped in experience gained from deploying tools and technologies they’ve developed to launch, troubleshoot and run live applications, to solve complex problems and achieve very real-world results.”
“ISC provides students an opportunity to immerse themselves in their chosen field,” said Martin Meuer, co-chairman of the ISC High Performance conference and exhibition. “Students benefit from networking with industry leaders and augmenting their studies with full access to the technical programs. We welcome the 2019 teams and wish all of the entries good luck.”
Detailed information about the competition, sponsorships, team entries and requirements is available on the 2019 Student Cluster Competitionpages.
