IEEE Seymour Cray Computer Science and Engineering Award
Established in 1997, the IEEE Computer Society Seymour Cray
Computer Engineering Award recognizes innovative contributions to high
performance computing systems that best exemplify the creative spirit
demonstrated by Seymour Cray. Previous winners have been recognized for
design, engineering and intellectual leadership in creating innovative
and successful HPC systems. One of HPC’s most prestigious awards,
winners receive an illuminated certificate and a $10,000 honorarium at a
special awards session during the conference. Learn more by clicking here.
IEEE Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award
IEEE Computer Society Sidney Fernbach Award was established in 1992 in
honor of Sidney Fernbach, one of the pioneers in the development and
application of high performance computers for solving large
computational problems. Nominations that recognize creation of
widely-used and innovative software packages, application software and
tools are especially solicited. The Fernbach award winner receives a
certificate and $2,000. Learn more by clicking here.
ACM-IEEE CS Ken Kennedy Award
The ACM/IEEE Ken Kennedy Award, established in 2009, is
presented for outstanding contributions to programmability or
productivity in computing, together with significant community service
or mentoring contributions. The award was established in memory of Ken
Kennedy, the founder of Rice University’s nationally ranked computer
science program and one of the world’s foremost experts on high
performance computing. Awardees receive a certificate and a $5,000
honorarium. Learn more by clicking here.
