SESSION: SC13 Conference Awards Presentations
EVENT TYPE: Awards
TIME: 12:30PM - 1:30PM
SESSION CHAIR: Daniel A. Reed
Presenter(s):Daniel Reed, Dennis Gannon
The awards managed by the SC13 conference, as well as selected ACM and IEEE awards, will be presented. These include the ACM Gordon Bell Prize, ACM-W Athena Lecturer Award, and the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) Young Investigators in Scalable Computing Awards; the SC13 Best Paper, Best Student Paper, and Best Poster Awards; George Michael Memorial HPC Ph.D. Fellowship; ACM Student Research Competition; and Student Cluster Competition. The SC13 Test of Time paper awardee will also be recognized. The winning team in the Student Cluster Competition Standard Track has been determined based on a combined score for workload completed, benchmark performance, conference attendance, and interviews. This years Standard Track, Overall Winner is: University of Texas, Austin. The second Standard Track Student Cluster award goes to the overall student team with the Highest Linpack Benchmark. The Standard Track team with the Highest Linpack Benchmark performance with 8.22 TFLOPS is: National University of Defense Technology, China Team. In the Student Cluster Commodity Track competition teams are allowed to spend no more than $2500 and the cluster must have a 15-amp power limit. The overall winning team of the Commodity Track is: Bentley University, Waltham, Massachusetts. The final Student Cluster award goes to the Commodity Track student team with the Lowest Dollars-per-GLOPs Linpack result. The Commodity Track team with the Lowest Dollars-per-GLOPs Linpack result with $4.96/GLOP is: Arizona State University Team.
