HPC Advisory Council logo“HPC is critically important to our economy and future, and its role is growing both in research and industry,” said Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “The University Award program is part of our ongoing effort to encourage and provide incentives for HPC education and advancement. We look forward to reviewing proposals, and working with the winners to highlight their research and further advances in HPC technology and education.”

“This is an excellent opportunity for students around the world to bring their research to life and highlight the end results to the HPC community,” said Hussein Nasser El-Harake at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre who serves as the Director of the HPC Advisory Council Center of Excellence in Switzerland. “As part of the HPC Advisory Council’s award submission review team, we look forward to reviewing what students have planned for utilizing the performance power of clusters to solve interesting and important problems.”

Proposals are due by Oct 30, 2010, and can be submitted from the Council’s website. Winning submissions will receive a grant of time on the Council’s computing resources, travel expenses to present at one of the Council workshops, and publication of results on the Council website.
