The HPC Advisory Council today announced that Xiangqian Hu from Duke University has received the prestigious HPC Advisory Council 2010 University Award for advanced research in the subject area of high-performance computing. Twice a year, the HPC Advisory Council selects worthy proposals allowing winners to benefit from the council’s wide range of resources and events, including the opportunity to present their final research results to a wider audience. One of the HPC Advisory Council’s main activities is community and education outreach. The University Award program is an outgrowth of this and is intended to enhance students’ computing knowledge-base.
With the goal to develop a new fragment-based approach to simulate liquid water, Mr. Hu’s submission ‘Massively Parallel Quantum Mechanical Simulations for Liquid Water’ stood out amongst all of the submissions. We congratulate Mr. Hu and look forward to providing him the tools and cluster resources necessary to complete his research. We look forward to reviewing proposals for 2011, and working with the winners to highlight their research and further advances in HPC technology and education,” said Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council.
Proposals for the 2011 HPC Advisory Council University Award Program can be submitted between November 1, 2010 and May 31, 2011. The winning proposal(s) will be determined by June 19th and the winner(s) will be notified. You can find the HPC Advisory Council at SC10 booth number 4123.
