Student Cluster Competition
2017 Student Cluster Competition
SC17, Denver, CO
- What is the name of your team and why did you choose it?
Our team is named as THU-PACMAN after the classic 2D game that emerged at the early age of personal computers.
- Why do you think your team will have an edge in the event (what's your secret sauce)?
The same reason presented in our team proposal. Over the past few years we have won several championships, especially a grand slam in 2015. This year we made two more championships in both ASC and ISC. Generally speaking, it somehow proves that THU-PACMAN is a strong team. Besides, we benefit from a large amount of experience accumulated throughout years of supercomputing challenges.

Ummm... We order food delivery during each group meeting.
