In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team previews the SC16 Student Cluster Competition. To get us primed up, Dan gives us his impressions of the 14 teams competing this year. That’s a record number!

“The Student Cluster Competition was developed in 2007 to immerse undergraduate and high school students in high performance computing. Student teams design and build small clusters, with hardware and software vendor partners, learn designated scientific applications, apply optimization techniques for their chosen architectures, and compete in a non-stop, 48-hour challenge, at the SC conference, to complete a real-world scientific workload, while impressing conference attendees and interview judges with their HPC knowledge.”
