HPC Advisory Council and ISC Group Announce the 2018 Student Cluster Competition

Jaa

The HPC Advisory Council (HPCAC), the community-led organization dedicated to high-performance computing (HPC) research, outreach and education, and the ISC Group, organizers of Europe’s premier HPC forum, today announced that they have officially kicked off the ISC-HPCAC Student Cluster Competition (SCC) with an open call for team entries inviting international STEM student teams currently enrolled in four-year higher education and undergraduate programs to submit proposals for the 2018 competition. Submissions will be accepted through November 10, 2017. The top twelve teams selected will be announced on November 15, 2017 and face off in Frankfurt, Germany, during the annual ISC High Performance Conference and Exhibition scheduled for June 24-28, 2018.

Now in its seventh year, the Student Cluster Competition enables international teams to take part in a real-time contest focused on advancing STEM disciplines and HPC skills development. To take home top honors, the teams will have to showcase systems of their own design, adhering to strict power constraints and achieve the highest performance across a series of standard HPC benchmarks and applications.

Showcased at the conference’s closing plenary session, the intense three-day competition will culminate in front of thousands of conference attendees. Students will take center stage, alongside HPC luminaries, for a live ceremony to award and recognize each of the participating teams.

“The Student Cluster Competition provides a real-world hands-on education that directly benefits students and their individual studies,” noted Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “Team members gain access to a wealth of industry expertise, training and tools and hands-on exposure to a range of technologies and techniques they’ll use for competition and throughout their careers. By helping advance their knowledge and capabilities, the entire HPC community benefits.”

“SCC is an opportunity to contribute to the ISC tradition of supporting education and our future workforce,” said Martin Meuer, co-chairman of ISC High Performance. “All of our competitors have access to the full conference and our student programs. This is our way of giving back to the community, to the students, their current studies, and future success. We look forward to welcoming the incoming teams and wish all of the entries good luck.”

“Always fierce rivals in the heat of competition, teams establish peer relationships and lifelong friendships. They’re basically building the next generation of the HPC community,” said Pak Lui, principal architect at Huawei Technologies. “That overall experience is an extremely powerful influencer. It fuels the ongoing rivalries and the number of entries submitted from established teams and in attracting entirely new teams,” said the competitions veteran SCC director. “It’s the combination of the individual student and teams total experience, their combined contributions of ingenuity, unity and spirit that makes for such a great competition and is what makes this SCC a world-class championship.”

Preparation for competition includes working with technology partners to design and build a competitive system from commercially available components, and working with advisors and mentors to master the HPC applications, tools, techniques and tricks that are critical to a team’s overall performance during the live competition.

Oxera Releases New Analysis on Europe’s Aviation Market, Revealing Increased Competition between Airports26.9.2017 19:13Tiedote

Oxera Consulting LLP has revisited the subject of airport competition in Europe, conducting research and analysis on the implications of recent market trends on the dynamics between airports and airlines in Europe. Oxera found that the European aviation market grew by 25% between 2010 and 2016, with key trends including the continuing rapid expansion of LCCs (low-cost carriers) and non-traditional hubs in the Middle East and Istanbul. These developments have contributed to an intensification of the rivalry between airports, across all channels through which they compete. With many of these trends now being long established, the competitive pressures on airports, of all sizes, across Europe are highly likely to endure and continue to develop, implying that regulators and government stakeholders will need to address this ‘new normal’.
