Awards for Outstanding High Performance Computing Achievements Presented at SC12

SC12, the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, concluded Friday, Nov. 16, following the recognition of achievements by members of the supercomputing community. Among the honors presented during the conference were the ACM Gordon Bell Prize, ACM/IEEE Computer Society George Michael Memorial HPC Ph.D. Fellowship Award, several competitive challenges, best paper and best poster awards.

Held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, this year’s conference set an all-time record for technical program submissions. Overall conference attendance was over 9,700. In addition, 338 exhibitors filled the conference’s 365,000 square feet of exhibit hall space in the convention center.

“This year’s SC continued in the long tradition of providing HPC researchers and scientists a forum for discovery,” said Jeff Hollingsworth, SC12 general chair. “The discussions and collaborations sparked at SC12 will lead to new ideas and innovations for years to come. My special thanks to all the volunteers who contributed to SC12 and my congratulations to those honored for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the community.”

The following individuals and organizations were recognized with awards:
