The UT students competed against seven other teams from the U.S., Germany, China and Australia during the real-time, non-stop, 48-hour challenge. The competition is designed to introduce the next generation of students to the high-performance computing community.
The University of Texas winning team members are:
- Eric Dawson (biology);
- Jim Given (computer science, mathematics);
- Reid McKenzie (computer science);
- Julian Michael (computer science, physics);
- Suvamsh Shivaprasad (computer science); and
- Zachary Tschirhart (computer science, aerospace engineering, mathematics).
The team was coached by Rosales-Fernandez, John Cazes and John Lockman from the university's Texas Advanced Computer Center (TACC), and two of last year's team members served as student advisors: Michael Teng (computer science) and Andrew Wiley (computer science, electrical engineering).
