The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, announced that the HPC Advisory Council will host The Second Student RDMA Programming Competition. It is designed for undergraduate to study RMDA, and is also an excellent opportunity for RDMA programming expert to shining the talent. The competition was first held in 2013, attracted more than 20 colleges and universities from across the country to enroll and received wide attention from experts of international high performance computing, cloud computing and big data.
The competition is an upgrade from last year. It received the support of several well-known domestic and foreign institutions, including: Cloud Advisory Council, the San Diego Supercomputer Center, China Computer Federation Tech Committee of HPC, China Grid and so on. All the committee members are international well recognized HPC experts, and the chairman is Dr. Richard Graham who is also Scale Special Interest Group Chair of HPCAC.
There are 29 teams from Universities all over the country participate the Second Student RDMA competition. And we announced the final result during 2014 HPC Advisory Council China Workshop (Nov.5) in Guangzhou, China.

The HPC Advisory Council is a large eco-system organizations which focuses on bridging the gap between high-performance computing use and its potential, bringing the beneficial capabilities of HPC to new users for better research, education, innovation and product manufacturing, and brings users the expertise needed to operate HPC systems, provide application designers with the tools needed to enable parallel computing, and to strengthen the qualification and integration of HPC system products. The council has many subgroups, including HPC|Cloud, HPC|Scale, HPC|GPU, HPC|Storage. HPC|Works and HPC|FSI. All the members can use the cluster for free.
The HPC Advisory Council held the first National Supercomputer Competition for University Students in 2012 and Asia Supercomputer Community in 2013 (ASC13), attracting high attention of more than 300 universities throughout the country and the Asia region. In the last two competitions, Tsinghua University won the championship in 2012 Supercomputer Competition, as well as National University of Defense Technology achieved the Highest Calculating Performance Award. In 2013’s RDMA competition, Huazhong University of Science and Technology and Northwestern Polytechnical University won the First Prize.
