HPC Innovation Excellence Award


The HPC Innovation Excellence Awards recognize noteworthy achievements by users of high performance computing (HPC), which includes simulation, AI and other advanced analytics, quantum computing and other methods and technologies. The program's main goals are to:

By HPC, we mean technical computing that includes modeling and simulation, computational analysis, machine/deep learning, artificial intelligence, or quantum computing. HPC is used in supercomputing facilities to support science, engineering, and data analytics; enterprise data centers to support business operations and research; departments and business units of organizations; and in third-party (external) cloud environments. 

Criteria for the Awards
Hyperion Research and the HPC User Forum Steering Committee welcome award entries from anywhere in the world.

Process for Submitting
