About the Student Cluster Competition

SC12 will again feature the Student Cluster Competition as an opportunity to showcase student expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition. Held in collaboration with the Communities Program, the Student Cluster Competition is designed to introduce the next generation of students to the high-performance computing community. Over the last few years, the competition has drawn teams from around the world, including Canada, China, Costa Rica, Germany, Russia, and Taiwan.

In this real-time, non-stop 48-hour challenge, teams of students use their expertise and their clusters to demonstrate the greatest sustained performance across a series of applications. The teams typically partner with strategic vendors to design and build a cutting-edge cluster from commercially available components.
