New, hybrid format presents new challenges and opportunities as European undergraduates return to the event in-person after a two-year, virtual-only format.

For the fourth consecutive year, students from Heidelberg University demonstrated their international clout in the field of high-performance computing (HPC) by successfully participating in the Student Cluster Competition (SCC), integrated in the annual International High Performance Computing (ISC21) conference. Team Heidelbears, which had qualified for this year’s 12-team contest, served as only German representative in the international competition. The team delivered a strong showing and came out of the competition securing a solid 7th place.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) will again be held in digital format only. The event will take place from June 24 to July 2, and the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) will be there with a dedicated website and a virtual booth.

Multinational, multigenerational research team focuses on efficiently solving large systems of linear equations common in countless HPC applications.

The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing proudly announces that it will partner with International Supercomputing Conference (ISC20) organizers to once again offer awards, which will take place in Frankfurt/Main (Germany) June 21-25, 2020. The GCS Award will honor the most outstanding research paper submitted to the ISC research paper sessions.

From sponsoring students and awards, to speaking and moderating discussions, to hosting guests at its “HPC Happy Hour,” GCS and centres’ staffs were heavily involved in this year’s International Supercomputing Conference.

Meet GCS at ISC19 in Frankfurt am Main (June 16-20, 2019) at booth #B-1310.

The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing will partner with ISC19 organizers to once again offer awards at the upcoming International Supercomputing Conference (ISC), which will take place in Frankfurt/Main (Germany) in June of 2019. The GCS Award will honor the most outstanding research paper submitted to the ISC research paper sessions.

SC18, the leading international exhibition and conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis, will take place in Dallas, Texas, USA, November 11-16, 2018. HLRS (High Performance Computing Center, Stuttgart), JSC (Jülich Supercomputing Centre), and LRZ (Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, Garching/Munich) will again participate in the conference.

Three GCS sponsored German student teams competed in the Student Cluster Competition of ISC18, leading to awards and leadership roles in education workshops. The teams of bachelor students represented the Universität Hamburg, the Heidelberg University, and the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU).

Researchers from the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg were awarded the 2018 Gauss Award during the opening session of ISC18 in Frankfurt, Germany. The award-winning research paper explores methods to more accurately model computer chip energy consumption.

GCS significantly increased its support of the Student Cluster Competition (SCC), the largest HPC contest for students, which is part of the annual supercomputing conferences. At ISC18, GCS supports three German university teams (out of 12 total teams) competing.

The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing's 10 years at the leading edge was highlighted through awards and prominent roles at the ISC High Performance conference, held June 18–22 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Team “FAUboyzz” will be representing the Friedrich-Alexander Universät Erlangen Nürnberg at ISC17. The multi-disciplinary team consists of six students studying computational engineering, computer science and medical engineering at FAU.

Representatives from the three Gauss Centres attended the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) from June 19-23 in Frankfurt. Activities at ISC16 included exhibitions, workshops, awards and much more.
