Stony Brook has an undergraduate team, one of five chosen out of eight entries worldwide, going to the ISC’12 Student Cluster Competition in Hamburg, Germany, from June 18 to 20. The competition is part of the International Supercomputing Conference, 2012 and is held in collaboration with the High Performance Computing Advisory Council and the International Supercomputing Conference.
The competition will feature small teams that compete to demonstrate the capabilities of state-of-the-art high-performance cluster hardware and software. In a real-time challenge, the teams will build a small cluster of their own design on the ISC exhibit floor and race to demonstrate the greatest performance across a series of benchmarks and applications.
Professor Yuefan Deng, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, is the faculty supervisor for the team.
