The DREAM:Lab team, led by PhD candidate Aakash Khochare, won the IEEE TCSC SCALE Challenge 2019 award [1]. The annual competition sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) [2] and held as part of the IEEE/ACM Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing Conference (CCGrid) [3] recognizes “real-world problem solving using computing that scales”. The team also included students Sheshadri Ramachandra, Shriram Ramesh, Swapnil Gandhi and Anubhav Guleria, and the faculty advisor Prof. Yogesh Simmhan, all from the Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. The entry from IISc was one of three that were selected for demonstration at the SCALE Challenge this year, with the other two from Tsinghua University in China and University of Sydney in Australia [4]. This is the first time that a team from India has won the SCALE challenge in the 12 years that the competition has been held, and the second time that Prof. Simmhan has won this challenge.
