Each year at the Supercomputing conference, undergraduate students compete in the Student Cluster Competition. Boston has fielded a team for several years with excellent results.

This year, a Commodity Cluster track has been introduced. In this track, teams of five students will bring commercially available hardware that is not to exceed a $2500 USD retail price limit and a 15-amp power limit.

We will hear presentations from both the standard and commodity track teams.

• The standard track team comes out of Boston University and Northeastern University

• The commodity track team consists of students from Bentley University and Northeastern University

Food & drink will be sponsored by Microway.
