HPC Advisory Council Announces University Award Program

Winners will Benefit from a Range of Council Resources and Events

SUNNYVALE, Calif. & LUGANO, Switzerland — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 9, 2010 — The HPC Advisory Council, a leading worldwide organization for high-performance computing research, development, outreach and education, today announced a University Award program that will be accepting research proposals for advanced research in the subject area of high-performance computing. Twice a year, the HPC Advisory Council will select worthy proposals allowing winners to benefit from a range of the council’s resources and events, including the opportunity to present their final research results to a wider audience.

One of the HPC Advisory Council’s main activities is community and education outreach. The University Award program is an outgrowth of this, and is intended to enhance students’ computing knowledge-base as early as possible.

“HPC is critically important to our economy and future, and its role is growing both in research and industry,” said Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “The University Award program is part of our ongoing effort to encourage and provide incentives for HPC education and advancement. We look forward to reviewing proposals, and working with the winners to highlight their research and further advances in HPC technology and education.”

“This is an excellent opportunity for students around the world to bring their research to life and highlight the end results to the HPC community,” said Hussein Nasser El-Harake at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre who serves as the Director of the HPC Advisory Council Center of Excellence in Switzerland. “As part of the HPC Advisory Council’s award submission review team, we look forward to reviewing what students have planned for utilizing the performance power of clusters to solve interesting and important problems.”

Winners will be provided with the following:

1. Exclusive computation time on the HPC Advisory Council’s Compute Center

2. Invitation to present the research results at one of the HPC Advisory Council’s worldwide workshops, including sponsorship of travel expenses (according to the Council Award Program rules)

3. Publication of the research results on the HPC Advisory Council website and related publications

4. Publication of the research results and a demonstration, if applicable, within the HPC Advisory Council world-wide technology demonstration activities

Proposals for the 2011 HPC Advisory Council University Award Program can be submitted from August 1, 2010 through October 30, 2010 at the HPC Advisory Council website. The selected proposal(s) will be determined by November 15th and the winner(s) will be notified.
