The HPC Quest 2010 organised by IHPC wrapped up on 15th September 2010, with a final round of presentations by five teams at Fusionopolis.

Each team had to pick one of two quests that involved  the applicaition of high performance computing concepts and techniques to devise working solutions to real world problems. The students worked over ten weeks to learn and understand the key concepts of high performance computing, and benefitted from the mentorship of IHPC researchers who guided them with valuable advice.

It was a closely fought competition, and the judges were highly impressed with the solutions presented by the teams.
