Once again, the SC Conference series is pleased to host the Student Cluster Competition (SCC), now in its sixteenth year, at SC22. The SCC is an opportunity for students to showcase their expertise in a friendly, yet spirited, competition. Held as part of the Students@SC program, the SCC is designed to introduce the next generation of students to the high-performance computing community. The competition draws teams of undergraduate students from around the world.

The Student Cluster Competition is an HPC multi-disciplinary experience integrated within the HPC community's biggest gathering, the Supercomputing Conference. The competition is a microcosm of a modern HPC center that teaches and inspires students to pursue careers in the field. It demonstrates the breadth of skills, technologies and science that it takes to build, maintain and utilize supercomputers.

Competition teams are composed of six students, an advisor, and vendor partners. The students provide their skills and enthusiasm, the advisor provides guidance, and the vendor provides resources (e.g., software, expertise and, in normal years, travel funding).

The 2021 Supercomputing Conference included an in-person conference, in St. Louis, and opportunities for virtual attendance. With continuing pandemic travel restrictions, particularly for international teams, the 2021 Student Cluster Competition was, once again, entirely virtual. More information about the competition can be found on our 2021 page and at the SC21 site.
