FIRST STUDENT CLUSTER SUPERCOMPUTING COMPETITION FOCUSING ON RACIAL INCLUSION
This new event, the Winter Classic Invitational Student Cluster Competition, joins SC, ISC and ASC global competitions as the fourth major cluster competition held annually to support the need to mentor and learn for university students interested in HPC, AI and science based computation.
The virtual competition runs from January 25-29, 2021, with student teams remotely running on vendor-provided hardware in vendor data centers.
“I strongly believe that the cluster competition will benefit our participating computer science students by giving them the opportunity to learn more about High Performance Computing” said Professor Radoslav Nickolov, chair of the Fayetteville State University’s Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. “Our students will also greatly benefit from the mentoring they will receive from sponsoring vendors and improve their future career prospects.”
