In the international ISC Student Cluster Competition (SCC), student teams build small clusters of different architectures to achieve the highest performance by running a series of applications and benchmarks under 3kW peak power limitation. The competition will be held in June in Frankfurt (Germany) as an integral part of the ISC High Performance Conference and Exhibition, and TeamEPCC will be there.

The Student Cluster Challenge at ISC (International Supercomputing Conference) is a competition where student teams from around the world build clusters competing against each other to achieve the maximum performance whilst remaining within a strict power limit of 3kW. Cluster performance will be assessed by the HPCC  (HPC Challenge) benchmark suite and a set of real world benchmarks.
