The Supercomputing Challenge Proposal
A proposal for the Supercomputing Challenge is a brief description of
the computational scientific problem that your team plans to solve. In the proposal,
you must clearly state
- what the problem is, the definition of the problem
- why it is important, the purpose of the project or what results
you hope to get
- how you plan to work on it, plan of action or methods you hope
The proposal is helpful to both you and the judges who will access the
completed projects. Preparing the proposal helps the team define
exactly what its project will be. After you pin down the problem that
you will solve, you must devise a plan of action, in other words, decide
how you will solve the problem. This plan of action will guide your
work during the year. The plan may include doing research, writing a
computer program, analyzing data, talking to people in that particular
field, and drawing conclusions. The judges will read each proposal to
get an initial impression of the project. You can read last year's
proposal in the archives.
Remember proposals are short and concise, no more than 250 words.
Each of the points can be covered in one or two sentences.
