Announcement - Call for papers: PRACE Award for young scientists

The PRACE Award 2010 is now accepting paper submissions.

Papers must address one of the following areas:

  • Algorithms or implementations that can expose scalability on many thousands of processors
  • A breakthrough in science achieved with massively parallel high performance or hybrid computing resources
  • Novel approaches to evaluate the performance of applications on massively parallel or hybrid architectures

The award will be presented at the opening session of the International Supercomputing Conference; the author of the winning paper will have the opportunity to give a keynote talk on their work during the ISC ’10 Scientific Sessions on Monday 31 May 2010.

The winner, who will be chosen by the ISC Award Committee, will receive a PRACE sponsorship to participate in a training event or a conference relevant to petascale computing.

Full papers of not more than eight pages should be submitted to by 11 January 2010. Papers are accepted only in pdf format, and the language has to be English. Applicants must be European students or young scientists.

Please indicate in your accompanying email the name and address of the corresponding author, the topic area, as well as the fact that you wish for your paper to be considered for the PRACE Award.

Papers will be peer-reviewed by three reviewers and will be evaluated based on their novelty, fundamental insights and potential for long-term contribution. By submitting a paper, you agree to present the paper at ISC’10 in Hamburg, Germany; presenters need to be registered ISC’10 participants.
