Imagine Tomorrow

Student Cluster Competition

The ISC Student Cluster Competition is an ISC exhibition and conference highlight! This is the 12 consecutive competition in the ISC series.

This year’s competition welcomes 15 virtual and seven in-person teams. The in-person teams will compete on the show floor during the event. In contrast, the virtual teams will compete on the Bridges-2 supercomputers of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh) and the clusters, Fritz and Alex at the Friedrich Alexander Universität in Erlangen, Germany.

We thank our partner HPC-AI Advisory Council for organizing and supervising the virtual and the in-person competitions. Our gratitude goes to all the judges and juries as well!

The winning teams will be announced at an in-person awarding ceremony on May 24, at 5:30 pm, on the same stage as the Wednesday keynote address.
