Student Cluster Competition
The Student Cluster Competition (SCC) 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 a supercomputer. The SCC is funded by the SC conference and by generous sponsors who understand the importance of building the next generation of HPC.
