Abstract/Artist Statement

High performance computing (HPC) is a quickly changing area within the technology realm. To help students gain some HPC undergraduate experience, the University of the Pacific School of Engineering and Computer Science partnered with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to establish Team Venus to compete in the Student Cluster Challenge at SC12, the largest international conference for HPC. Team Venus was not only the first team sent by Pacific to the challenge, it was additionally the first all-female team to participate in the 24 year history of the conference. The purpose of this project involves the overall preparation of the team members, specifically from a system administration point of view, but its conclusion results in detailed documentation of the team’s journey in the hopes that it will help in the planning of the teams, which will follow.
