Reinventing HPC

Recognizing Research Excellence and Accomplishments at ISC 2023

Hamburg, Germany, May 19, 2023 – Research requires persistence, and the contribution of early and middle-career researchers to expanding the frontiers of high performance computing and related domains can sometimes be overlooked. The ISC Conference Series celebrates individual and collective research accomplishments with several awards to recognize the important work.

We hope you will attend the following sessions to honor the following researchers’ contributions to our community.

Jack Dongarra Early Career Award and Lecture Series - Monday, May 22, 11:25 am to 12 pm (Hall Z)

The inaugural Jack Dongarra Award winner is Dr. Torsten Hoefler, an associate professor at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. This award acknowledges Hoefler’s significant contributions to converging HPC and AI. His research focuses on performance-centric system design, which includes scalable networks, parallel programming techniques, and performance modeling for large-scale simulations and AI systems. He is invited to lecture on Inheriting Excellence: High-Performance Computing at a Crossroads. This award includes prize money of 5,000 euros, which Professor Jack Dongarra himself will present.

Hans Meuer Award Session - Monday, May 22, 2:50 pm to 3:30 pm (Hall 4)

This award recognizes the most outstanding research paper submitted to the research paper committee. This year’s winning paper is Expression Isolation of Compiler-Induced Numerical Inconsistencies in Heterogeneous Code. This paper was authored by Dolores Miao, a computer science Ph.D. student at UC Davis, California, Dr. Ignacio Laguna, a computer scientist at the Center for Applied Scientific Computing (CASC) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Dr. Cindy Rubio-González, assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science at UC Davis. The winners receive a cash prize of 3,000 Euros and an award certificate.

Twenty-one accepted papers will be presented from Monday, May 22, to Wednesday, May 24. All accepted ISC 2023 research papers are published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and can be downloaded for free from the ISC website until June 15.

ISC Research Poster Award Session - Tuesday, May 23, 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm (Hall G1 - 2nd Floor), followed by a meet and greet Research Poster Reception from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm (Foyer D-G - 2nd Floor).

This year, three posters were nominated for the ISC 2023 Research Poster Award, sponsored by Springer, the international publisher specializing in science, technology, and medicine. This award recognizes three outstanding research posters selected by members of the posters committee. The winners will be chosen following a poster pitch. The research poster award includes a cash prize of 500 Euros (first place), 300 Euros (second place), and 200 Euros (third place).

The nominated posters are:
