Volkov and Demmel Paper on GPUs Wins SC19 Test of Time Award

Today SC19 announced the winners of the Test of Time Award. The annual award recognizes an outstanding paper that has deeply influenced the HPC discipline. We are pleased to announce the selection of the SC08 paper, “Benchmarking GPUs to Tune Dense Linear Algebra”, by Vasily Volkov (NVIDIA) and James Demmel (UC Berkeley) as the SC19 ToTA winner.

The paper was deemed deserving of the SC19 ToTA due to its first-of-its-kind vision of GPU architectures as a vector machine. By building on this vision, Volkov and Demmel defined techniques to achieve greater efficiency and performance.
