HPC Challenge

The HPC Challenge Awards will honor participants in two categories for innovative uses of high performance computing resources. This will provide opportunities for contestants to showcase applications and platforms. Judging by a panel of experts will take place when entry teams present the results of their project at a special session. The categories are as follows:

Most Innovative Data-Intensive Application: With the increasing ability to create, store, and re-access larger and larger datasets, one thing remains constant: the importance of mining such data to glean useful pieces of knowledge. The award will be presented to the entry that uses the most novel and/or inventive approaches in mining data, visualizing data, or a combination of these tasks.

Most Geographically Distributed Application: As the Grid continues to decrease the virtual distance between computers around the world, the ability to solve challenging computational problems with combinations of diverse system architectures is continuing to strengthen. The award will be presented to the team with the most geographically distributed application to solve a significantly complex problem.

Contestants will demonstrate their entries in front of an audience on Wednesday. Judges will make decisions on Wednesday afternoon, and awards will be presented at the Awards Session on Thursday.
