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.

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.
