Once again, the SC Conference series is pleased to host the Student Cluster Competition (SCC), now in its seventeenth year, at SC23. 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 travel funding).

Congratulations to the 2022 winners!

Competition Rules

Dynamic Power Limit

Cloud Component

Teams had access to cloud-based HPC resources in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and in Microsoft Azure.

AI Benchmark

In 2022, the SCC introduced an AI benchmark to the suite of benchmarks teams ran. In this inaugural year, the AI benchmark was optional for bonus points. Teams were encouraged to run the MLPerf inference benchmark for RetinaNet (image detection).
