Microsoft contest on HPC
Microsoft is launching a regional contest and engagement around High Performance Computing (HPC) with Engineering colleges and Universities.

Background
Once the exclusive domain of a handful of well-funded companies, supercomputing is increasingly becoming accessible, scalable and affordable to companies of all sizes, budgets and needs. Microsoft launched its first HPC offering last year and is bullish about its prospects in a US$10 billion market. Academic and research institutions in Asia have significant experience in High Performance computing and this programme is designed to expand on that by encouraging the students and the faculties to orient efforts in the direction of parallel programming and building applications, middleware and projects based on this concept.

Programme
This project will initially run at the key science universities in Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, Malaysia and Korea. Students will be introduced to the programme through information displayed at their university and by their lecturers. They can then go online to find out more about this programme and register their interest to participate.

The offer will vary slightly country-to-country however, students will be offered an MSDNAA license for only USD$1 per node (minimum 4 nodes) and if their project is chosen as a winner they will be rewarded with a prize (which will vary by dollar value per country).

The research projects could focus on, but are not limited to – Digital content creation, Animation, Science & Engineering, Finance, Geology, Medicine, Mining, Computational applications for development, Oil and gas exploration or any other field of research involving extensive computational calculations.
