Virtual Student Cluster Competition
TimeThursday, 19 November 20208:30am - 5pm EST
DescriptionThis year the Warsaw Team is comprised of the next generation of HPC apprentices, with the majority being first and second-year students. The vast majority of the Team is participating for the first time in the competition, and everyone is determined to work very hard to prove themselves! By participating in the Student Cluster Competition, new members wish to enter the HPC community, meet their peers from all around the world and gain skills they will later use to change the world! Experienced veterans of the student cluster competitions, former members of the Team, who no longer participate in contests, acting as our advisors, look after the preparations. Coming from different institutions such as the University of Warsaw or the Warsaw University of Technology, they provide an interdisciplinary view and approach to the challenges, that the young HPC adepts have to face.
The Team's interests vary from Artificial Intelligence to modelling how a disease spreads. Having experience at an early point will enable every member to yield a positive impact on any field of science in the future and jumpstart our academic and professional careers. Additionally, our mentors will help with any difficulties and team spirit will encourage us to not give up.
The following 6 team members were chosen to participate in the competition:
Marek Masiak will begin his studies in Computer Science at UCL this September, completing his transfer from the University of Warsaw to UCL. He enjoys exploring forests on his bike and grasping new concepts in NLP. Marek has been a member of the team for a year. During this time he participated in SC19 and ISC20.
Marek Skiba is a new member of the team and a first year student of Computer Science at the University of Warsaw. Last year he represented Poland in the International Olympiad in Informatics. In his spare time, he likes to climb and play chess with friends.
Paweł Pawłowski is also a new member of the team. It’s hard to find a programming language, he doesn’t know or will be unable to learn in a matter of a few days. Among his main interests are operating systems, reverse engineering and learning foreign languages.
Konrad Litwinski is new to the team. He is an enthusiast of Mathematics and is a laureate of Polish Mathematics Olympiad. He is a first year Computer Science student at the University of Warsaw. In his spare time he likes to hike and go to the gym.
Asia Wojciechowska is one more new team member and will be studying Computer Science at the University of Warsaw starting this fall. She loves solving algorithmic and mathematical problems. Besides, she enjoys travelling, cycling and linguistics.
Tomasz Cheda is a second year student of Computer Science at the University of Warsaw. He has previously represented Poland in the International Physics Olympiad. His other hobbies include 3D printing, quadcopter flying and rock climbing.
The team is also supported by SCC veterans: Łukasz Kondraciuk and Dominik Psujek.
