DescriptionTeam NTU was formed as part of the HPC club at NTU, a student run club that promotes HPC adoption and awareness in the University. Its diverse membership consists of students spanning a wide range of schools, including the schools of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, and Physical and Mathematical Sciences.

By organizing weekly training sessions, we were able to build up attendees’ skills and observe their competencies. From there, we were able to draw on that diverse pool to select club members with the right set of skills required to tackle this competition’s benchmarks and applications.

Our multidisciplinary team consists of members from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, School of Computer Science and Engineering, and School of Physical and Mathematical Science.

Further, our members also have a wide breadth of practical experience in administering and designing small-scale HPC systems, as some team members are also in charge of managing the club’s own clusters within the University’s Parallel and Distributed Computing laboratory. Beyond just maintenance, they also liaise with sponsors and lab administrators to procure hardware so as to keep the clusters at the bleeding edge of HPC technology. By doing HPC, our members also gained knowledge for computer science and some general science, which helps a lot on academic aspects.

We also have team members with prior participation in HPC-AI APAC, ISC and SC events. We believe our experience on those competitions would prove invaluable to our success in SC22.

Our advisor, Dr Bu-Sung Lee also gave us great support for learning HPC and joining all of these events. Dr. Lee is a faculty member of the School of Computer Science and Engineering, and also a member of the Policy & Resource Allocation Committee at Singapore’s National Supercomputing Center (NSCC), the team’s primary sponsor. He has been involved in many Asia-Pacific research and education networks including the Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network (SingAREN) (as its founding president) as well as the Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN-2).

We are also looking forward to learning from other teams for how they optimize the application and work on the cluster, making new friends, exploring different SC conferences for state-of-the-art HPC technologies and enhancing our HPC skills.
