SC14 Student Cluster Competition

The SC14 Student Cluster Competition is a real-time, non-stop, 48-hour challenge, in which teams of undergraduate and/or high school students assemble a small cluster on the SC14 exhibit floor and race to demonstrate the greatest sustained performance across a series of applications. In the Standard Track, student teams partner with vendors to design and build a cutting-edge cluster from commercially available components that does not exceed a specified power limit, and work with application experts to tune and run the competition codes. In the Commodity Track, teams of undergraduate and/or high school students bring commercially available hardware that is not to exceed a given budget and a specific power limit. Both "off-the-shelf" and "off-the-wall" solutions are encouraged.
