Supercomputing Challenge


Steps to participate in the Supercomputing Challenge

  1. Read the Invitation to Particpate in the 17th Annual Supercomputing Challenge. Teachers, print and post the Invitation Flyer and add your name and room number to it for students to contact you.
  2. Understand the AUP — the Acceptable Use Policy.
  3. Register Online (between September 1st and September 30th)
  4. Choose a computational science project. See science projects, areas of science, and project development for ideas and look at past projects in the archives.
  5. Mail in the TEAF (pdf file) — the Team Entry Authorization Form - Deadline October 6. (Mail it to the address at bottom of teaf page.)
  6. $40 Registration fee due for each student participating in the Supercomputing Challenge. (Send with the TEAF- Deadline October 6.)
  7. Fill out the Pre Challenge Survey
  8. Learn about the Kickoff Conference — the activities, rules, and expectations
  9. Prepare your Proposal — you must bring one with you to the kickoff. See Proposal hints. A Proposal template is to be filled out for each team.
  10. Look into the Future by browsing through the important dates

NOTE: Registration is being conducted via a secure web server. However, you must accept the "certificate" presented by the server.

Your web browser will most likely indicate that there is a potential problem with the certificate. This occurs because the certificate is not "signed" by a commercial company (e.g. Verisign). It has, however, been "signed" by the Supercomputing Challenge, and you can be certain that the information supplied by you will be encrypted en route to our database.
