The Shanghai Tech University team, GeekPie_HPC, is a student-led association that is participating in SCC for the second year in the row. Professor Shu Yin is GeekPie's advisor, and the team already has named him "the greatest team advisor." Per the team, they have been "collecting EECS-related (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) geeks in the School of Information and Science Technology (SIST) at Shanghai Tech."
On GeekPie_HPC, each team member fills a precise role. Four of the team members, Zijun, Tianyuan, Kaiyuan, and Yixuan, are from Laboratory of I/O System and Data Science (L.I.O.N.) at SIST. They hold different roles in the lab, from parallel file systems to I/O optimization and scientific computing. Yiwei is another team member from System and Software Security lab, SIST, who focuses on symbolic execution. Longwen is part of the ACM-ICPC algorithm team, who already has won several silver awards in nationwide competition.
The team explained it is "growing steadily thanks to success at ASC18, ISC18, and SC19 student cluster competitions and the newcomer influx." These new members are endowed with "courage, eagerness, and devotion." The team noted it is especially grateful to the SIST and the university's Library and Information Center for supporting them with comprehensive HPC resources.
With new energy injected into this vigorous team and more advanced HPC resources this year, GeekPie_HPC is seeking to become one of the most influential student supercomputing teams at SC20's VSCC.
