Gordon Bell Prizes Awarded at SC23 Conference
November 16, 2023
An eight-member team drawn from American and Indian institutions has been awarded the 2023 ACM Gordon Bell Prize for their project, “Large-Scale Materials Modeling at Quantum Accuracy: Ab Initio Simulations of Quasicrystals and Interacting Extended Defects in Metallic Alloys.” The ACM Gordon Bell Prize tracks the progress of parallel computing and rewards innovation in applying high-performance computing to challenges in science, engineering, and large-scale data analytics.
ACM also presented a 19-member team with the inaugural ACM Gordon Bell Prize for Climate Modelling for their project, “The Simple Cloud-Resolving E3SM Atmosphere Model Running on the Frontier Exascale System.” The new award aims to recognize innovative parallel computing contributions toward solving the global climate crisis.
Both awards were presented during the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC23).
