In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team previews the ISC 2018 Student Cluster Competition.

"Now in its seventh year, the ISC-HPCAC Student Cluster Competition enables international STEM teams to take part in a real-time contest focused on advancing STEM disciplines and HPC skills development at ISC 2018 from June 25-27. To take home top honors, twelve teams will have the opportunity to showcase systems of their own design, adhering to strict power constraints and achieve the highest performance across a series of standard HPC benchmarks and applications."



After that, Rich describes a number of ancillary events have been scheduled in Frankfurt.
