New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge
Supercomputing: Pushing the limits of "standard" computing du jour.


Steps to participate in the Supercomputing Challenge

  1. Read the Invitation to Participate in the Supercomputing Challenge.
    Teachers, print and post the Invitation Flyer or add your name and room number to Word version for students to contact you.
  2. Understand the A.U.P. — the Acceptable Use Policy.
  3. Register Online (between September 1st and September 20th)
    This year there is a three step process to registering for the Supercomputing Challenge.
  4. 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.
    Step 3: Students, fill out the Pre-Challenge Survey.

    Before registering a team, all of the team members should have registered individually. Up to five students can be on a team.
  5. Choose a computational science project. See science projects, areas of science, and project development for ideas and look at past projects in the archives.
  6. Mail in the T.E.A.F. (.pdf file)— the Team Entry Authorization Form — Deadline Friday, October 2nd, 2015. (Mail it to the address at the bottom of the T.E.A.F. page.)
  7. There is a $40 participation fee due for each student participating in the Supercomputing Challenge. (Send with the T.E.A.F. - Deadline Friday, October 2nd, 2015.)
  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.
