Students from high school to grad school levels are invited to participate in a programming contest at XSEDE13 high performance computing conference, which takes place in San Diego on July 22-25.

Created as an opportunity to showcase student expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition, the XSEDE13 Student Programming Competition aims to introduce the next generation of students to the high-performance computing community. Over the last couple of years, the competition has drawn teams from around the world, including China, South America, Canada, Africa and Europe. With access to parallel computing resources, teams consisting of up to five students (high school, undergraduate, and/or graduate students) will receive a variety of interesting computational science problems to address at the conference. Awards will recognize creativity, quality of solutions, and good coding practices of the teams who solve the most problems during the daylong competition.

Contest registration will open April 30, 2013 and close May 30, 2013.
