Scientific Computing Student Club (SC2) working on XSEDE Hybrid Computing challenge


After learning about hybrid computing at XSEDE’s summer bootcamp, the Scientific Computing Student Club (SC2) is working as a team on the XSEDE hybrid computing challenge: How fast can you run a 10K x 10K Laplace code to convergence using openMP, openACC and MPI?

This year’s challenge winner will get an NVIDIA K40 GPU. If the SC2 wins the challenge, the K40 will be used to start the clubs own allocation for club-based programming challenges and other test code, benchmarking, etc.

The challenge runs through July 8, 2016. If you are interested in participating, send an email to
