Are you a PhD student in high performance computing? Or a faculty member who is mentoring one of these students? Then consider applying for (or recommending a student for) an ACM/IEEE-CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship.
These fellowships honor exceptional PhD students throughout the world whose research focus areas are in high performance computing, networking, storage, and large-scale data analysis. ACM, the IEEE Computer Society, and the SC International Conference support this award, which was endowed in memory of George Michael, one of the founders of the SC Conference series.
Fellowship winners are selected each year based on overall potential for research excellence, the degree to which technical interests align with those of the HPC community, academic progress to date, recommendations by their advisor and others, and a demonstration of current and anticipated use of HPC resources. The Fellowship includes a $5,000 honorarium, plus travel and registration to receive the award at the annual SC conference. Submissions for this year's award close on May 1, 2013.
