Mentoring Undergraduates Through Competition

SESSION: Mentoring Undergraduates Through Competition


EVENT TAG(S): Outreach, Education, Student Program

TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM

Panelists:Brent Gorda, Jerry Chou, Rebecca Hartman-Baker, Doug Smith, Xuanhua Shi, Stephen Lien Harrell



The next generation of HPC talent will face significant challenges to create software ecosystems and optimally use the next generation of HPC systems. The rapid advances in HPC make it difficult for academic institutions to keep pace. The Student Cluster Competition, now in its ninth year, was created to address this issue by immersing students into all aspects of HPC. This panel will examine the impact of the Student Cluster Competition on the students and schools that have participated. Representatives from five institutions from around the world will talk about their experiences with the Student Cluster Competition with regards to their students' career paths, integration with curriculum and academic HPC computing centers. The panel will further discuss whether "extracurricular" activities, such as the Student Cluster Competition, provide sufficient return on investment and what activities could change or replace the competition to meet these goals more effectively.

Brent Gorda (Moderator) - Intel Corporation

Rebecca Hartman-Baker - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Doug Smith - University of Colorado Boulder
