Test of size 3/29/2010 © Derek Chiou: EE360N: Lecture 17 3 Announcements: Supercomputing Cluster Challenge SC10, the premier international conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, will hold the fourth annual Student Cluster Competition at this year’s meeting held in New Orleans, LA from November 13-19, 2010. The Student Cluster Competition is the high-performance computing community’s Olympic event showcasing supercomputing’s young talent. In this real-time, non-stop 46-hour challenge, teams of six undergraduate or high school students design and assemble a small cluster on the SC exhibit floor and race to complete the greatest number of applications runs. The added catch is that teams will be required to run workloads on the same power needed to run only three coffee makers. Team preparation, prior to the competition, includes working with supervisors and vendor partners to design and build a cutting-edge cluster from commercially available components, that does not exceed the 26 amp power limit, and to learn the predetermined HPC applications. After the starting gun at SC10, teams will compete to achieve the best HPCC benchmark performance and maximum throughput of accurate applications runs, all while remaining at or below their energy budget. Teams also compete to impress SC participants and judges with visualizations, presentations, and interviews. The team from Stony Brook University, NY, won the SC09 Student Cluster Competition, sponsored by AMD, Dell and Mellanox Technologies.

Test of size Supercomputing Cluster Challenge http://sc10.supercomputing.org/files/SC10SubmissionsSCC.html I’m looking for 4 undergraduate students who will: commit at least an average of 2 hours per week for working on the various aspects of the cluster build: researching other clusters, evaluating hardware, testing/benchmarking the competition applications, practice, and regular team meetings. start working with the team this week or early next week. The team must submit an application to the SC10 Cluster Challenge organizers by April 16. The final plan for the cluster is due in September. participate in the competition at SC10 in New Orleans, from November 12 to 17. offer some level of expertise/experience in one or multiple areas: parallel computing architecture, programming, Microsoft HPC Server or Linux, physics, or engineering. I can not guarantee that each student who expresses interest will be on the team. But I can promise a fair process to choose the final members of the team. I suggest that students think of this as if they are applying for a job. So the above bullets are similar to job requirements.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
