Nomination Deadline:1 May 2020
Next nominations window: March 1 to May 1, 2021
The award committee is selected by the two societies and includes past winners as well as leaders in the field. The Fellowship includes a $5000 honorarium, recognition on the ACM, IEEE CS, and ACM SIGHPC websites, and travel expenses to attend SC. The recipients will be honored at the SC Conference Awards Ceremony
- overall potential for research excellence
- degree to which technical interests align with those of the HPC community
- demonstration of current and planned future use of HPC resources
- evidence of a plan of study to enhance HPC-related skills
- evidence of academic progress to-date, including presentations and publications
- recommendation by faculty advisor
- Name, address, phone number, and email address of nominator (in this case, the candidate is self-nominating).
- Name and contact info for endorser (must be the candidate’s PhD advisor). After the nomination has been submitted, the student will receive an email confirming its receipt. That email will include an encrypted URL which must be forwarded to the advisor. The advisor will use the URL to submit a confidential letter of endorsement (not to exceed 1500 words). Note that it is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure that the advisor (a) receives the endorsement instructions, and (b) submits the endorsement before the deadline.
- Suggested citation if the nomination is selected. This should be a concise statement (maximum of 25 words) describing your research. Note that the final wording for award announcements will be at the discretion of the Award Committee.
- Nomination (PDF not exceeding 5 pages in length, following typical technical paper page standards: 11pt font, single spaced text, fitting within 7.5” x 10” text area). Note that the research interests should be explained in terms understandable to a non-specialist. Only nominations meeting all requirements, including length limitations, will be considered.
