SoC Undergraduates take 2nd Place at SC2016

November 18, 2016

The University of Utah’s School of Computing undergraduate team took second place overall at the 2016 Super Computing Student Cluster Competition. There were 14 teams that participated from all over the world.

Hari Sundar and Mary Hall coached this year’s team through a special topics course this fall. The team received significant support from the Center for High Performance Computing, especially Brian Haymore. Congratulations to the following students: Mark Baranowski, Braden Caywood, Hannah Eyre, Janaan Lake, Kevin Parker, and Kincaid Savoie.

“The students are juniors and seniors, and many came with little or no prior experience working in high-performance computing. They worked hard throughout the semester and for 48 hours straight at the competition to compete at the highest level for this honor,” said Mary Hall, Professor in the School or Computing.
