*** COVID-19 Update ***

Following the ISC 2020 Committee's announcement, the ISC Student Cluster Competition will be held remotely (online) utilizing the supercomputing platforms at the National Supercomputing Centre Singapore.

As part of this year’s competition, we have joined the global fight against COVID-19 and the competition will include applications that address education and applied learning towards accelerating bioscience research and discovery. The student teams will be tasked to test several applications that are being used by scientists and researchers for finding cures against the virus.

Co-organized by the HPC-AI Advisory Council and ISC, the Student Cluster Competition will run from June 1 – June 24, 2020. The award ceremony will take place live during the ISC 2020 online event.

The ISC Student Cluster Competition encourages international teams of university students to showcase their expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition that fosters critical skills, professional relationships, competitive spirit and lifelong comraderies.

Here is a short summary from ISC19 SCC event:

The competition is an integral part of ISC 2020 in its online version, and its ongoing success and growing recognition as a world championship are a result of the collaborative partnership between ISC and the HPC-AI Advisory Council.

Since 2011, the joint collaboration has focused on introducing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students to the world of possibilities that is HPC – its leaders, opportunities and community, and helping develop critical skills students will use long after completing their current studies. Each team, comprised of six students and up to two advisers, compete in the competition and take part in the world’s oldest, and Europe’s premier, conference and networking event for the international HPC community.

Over these intense competition days, the teams demonstrate incredible capabilities to obtaining the greatest performance across a series of benchmarks and applications. In parallel to their day-to-day learnings, the students’ novel approaches and unique perspectives gained during the competition are integral to our own education – teaching us how HPC influences our world.

ISC and the HPC-AI Advisory Council would like to express our deep gratitude to the National Supercomputing Center Singapore for the supercomputing resources and support for the 2020 competition.
