NEW ORLEANS, LA, Nov. 15 -- HPCwire, the leading source for global news and information covering the fastest computers in the world and the people who run them (since 1986), revealed the winners of the HPCwire Annual Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards at the 23rd meeting of the Supercomputing Conference (SC10) in New Orleans, Louisiana. Jeff Hyman, publisher and president of HPCwire, revealed the list of winners at the HPCwire booth during the opening gala on Monday night.
HPCwire has designated two categories of Awards: (1) Readers' Choice, where winners have been determined by a poll of HPCwire readers, and (2) Editors' Choice, where winners have been determined by votes of a panel of recognized HPC luminaries, and contributing editors from industry. These awards are widely recognized as prestigious recognition from the HPC community.
"It's our honor to recognize, along with our readers, the people and organizations that are making strides in high performance computing," said Jeff Hyman. "The strides being made today in HPC are remarkable, and we're humbled by the opportunity to recognize some of the leading efforts. Those selected as award recipients can consider themselves at the top of mind of HPCwire readers, editors, and luminaries in the field. Our congratulations go with all of the recipients of our 2010 awards, and we look forward to seeing what they have in store for 2011."
