Calcul Québec at the 2021 McGill Physics Hackathon

The McGill Physics Hackathon is a friendly computer programming competition that welcomes everyone into the world of scientific computing! Over a 24-hour period, participants will have the opportunity to work on different projects which unites the physical sciences and computing.

For a second year, Calcul Québec is sponsoring and supporting this event by making 12 nodes with 8 cores, 1 to 2 vGPU and 128 GB of storage available for the competition. The cluster will have the same software environment as the Compute Canada’s Federation national cluster.

Throughout the event, participants will have the opportunity to meet and learn from like-minded, curious, and passionate individuals. Experts from both academia and industry will also be present to help with their projects.

Charles Coulombe and Pier-Luc St-Onge, scientific analysts at Calcul Québec, will be present at the virtual event as mentors for the teams.
