The 2019 Student Cluster Competition

Submit Your Application Until November 09, 2018

Now in its eight year, the ISC-HPC-AI Advisory Council (HPCAIAC) Student Cluster Competition enables international STEM teams to take part in a real-time contest focused on advancing STEM disciplines and HPC skills development at ISC 2019 from June 17-19. To take home top honors, twelve teams will have the opportunity to showcase systems of their own design, adhering to strict power constraints and achieve the highest performance across a series of standard HPC benchmarks and applications.

Showcased at the conference's closing plenary session, the intense three-day competition will culminate in front of thousands of conference attendees.  Students will take center stage, alongside HPC luminaries, for a live ceremony to award and recognize each of the participating teams.

Submissions will be accepted through November 09, 2018 through the dedicated competition section on the HPCAIAC website. The selected teams will be announced on November 14, 2018 at SC18 in Dallas, Texas.
