HPCC Systems collaborates with a number of academic institutions in the USA, Brazil, 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 (learn more here) supports research projects requiring data analytics and as a result, students working on these projects are also 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, academic partner contributor or any student independently working on a project that uses HPCC Systems.  

Our Technical Poster Contest has been held every year at our Community Day event since 2016. Take a walk down memory lane and look at the variety and of the contributions that have been showcased at our poster contest over the years. The aim of this contest is to give students working on HPCC Systems related projects, an opportunity to present their achievements to a wide audience of HPCC Systems open source community members and LexisNexis Risk Solutions Group employees. 

Our 2021 Poster Contest was held virtually and we thank students and judges for finding time in their busy schedules to meet for Q and A sessions which supports the judging process. Our judges always find it very difficult to choose winners from the submissions since all projects are completed to a very high standard by the dedicated students working on them. Yet winners must be chosen. Our 2021 Poster Contest Winners were announced during our 2021 HPCC Systems Community Day Summit.

In 2021, our Community Choice award will again be chosen by those who attend Community Day and vote for their favourite poster project. Our judges will choose winners in the following categories:
