HPCC Systems collaborates with a number of academic institutions in the USA, Europe and India. Our intern program, welcomes students on to the HPCC Systems platform team during the summer recess to work on HPCC Systems related projects. Our Academic Program supports research projects requiring data analytics which students also contribute to and as a result, are eligible to enter this contest. In fact, any student working on an HPCC Systems related project is welcome to enter this contest, regardless of whether they are an intern or academic partner contributor.  

We held our first technical presentation competition at our Community Day Summit in 2016. The aim of this contest is to give students working on HPCC Systems related projects, an opportunity to showcase their achievements to a wide audience of HPCC Systems open source community members and LexisNexis Risk Solutions employees. This event is held at our annual HPCC Systems Community Day Summit and you can read all about what happened at last year's poster contest by reading our Fly on the Wall - 2019 Poster Contest Blog.

Our 2020 Poster Contest will be held virtually this year, so it is going to look a little difference to our judges and students, but the outcome will look the same. We will announce the results on Community Day itself on Monday 5th October between 2-3pm ET. Also on the day, we will be presenting a new award to the student whose poster receives the most votes from all our Community Day attendees. This award is called the 'Community Choice Award'.
