Wake Forest to compete in supercomputing conference
Wake Forest University’s computer science department has been accepted to the Student Cluster Competition at the SC18 Supercomputing Conference Nov. 11-16 in Dallas. Wake Forest will compete against teams from around the world. Teams are composed of six students, at least one advisor and vendor partners. With sponsorship from hardware and software vendor partners, students design and build small clusters, learn designated scientific applications, apply optimization techniques for their chosen architectures and compete in a non-stop, 48-hour challenge at the conference to complete a real-world scientific workload.
