The SC Test of Time Award (ToTA) Committee is soliciting nominations for this year’s Test-of-Time Award to be given at the SC17 Conference in November 2017 in Denver, CO. The ToTA Award recognizes an outstanding paper that has deeply influenced the HPC discipline. It is a mark of historical impact and recognition that the paper has changed HPC trends. The award is also an incentive for researchers and students to send their best work to the SC Conference and a tool to understand why and how results last in the HPC discipline. Papers that appeared in the SC Conference Series are considered for this award. A paper must be at least 10 years old, from the twenty conference years 1988 to 2007, inclusive.
