Program Goals

Program Objectives

While there are multiple benchmarks to measure the performance of technical computers, there currently isn't an adequate methodology to evaluate the economic and scientific value HPC systems contribute. The HPC Innovation Excellence Award Program is designed to help close that gap.

The main objectives of the program are as follows:

Prizes

Winners will be invited to present their success stories at HPC User Forums, SC, ISC as well as industry specific events.

Judging Panel

Volunteers from the HPC User Forum Steering Committee will conduct an initial ranking of the submissions.
