Each year, SC showcases not only the best and brightest stars of high performance computing, but also its rising stars and those who have made a lasting impression. SC Awards provide one way these individuals are recognized. This page describes the various awards given each year at the SC conference.
Each year, the SC Technical Papers Committee identifies one paper as the best paper from the Conference’s Technical Program. The award will be announced at the SC17 awards ceremony.
Best Student Paper
Each year, the SC Technical Papers Committee identifies one paper as the best paper written primarily by a student or students and presented in the Conference’s Technical Program. Papers must be identified as student papers when submitted to be eligible for this award. This award will be announced at the SC17 awards ceremony.
Each year, the SC Posters Committee identifies one poster as the best poster presented as part of the Conference’s Technical Program. The award will be announced at the SC17 awards ceremony.
Test of Time Award
The “Test of Time” award recognizes a paper from a past conference that has deeply influenced the HPC discipline. It is a mark of historical impact, and requires clear evidence that the paper has changed HPC trends. It is presented annually to a single paper, selected from the conference proceedings that appeared at least 10 years ago. Starting with SC18, this will change to papers presented 10-25 years ago.
