Oct. 14 -- The IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence in Scalable Computing is awarded by the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) for significant and sustained contributions to scalable computing coupled with an outstanding record of high quality and high impact research. The award consists of a plaque and an honorarium of $1000. During 2008-2011, this honour was presented as the IEEE TCSC Medal for Excellence, and has since been renamed to the IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence.
The past recipients of this IEEE award are: Professor Jack Dongarra (University of Tennessee, USA) in 2008, Professor Rajkumar Buyya (University of Melbourne, Australia) in 2009, Professor William Gropp (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA) in 2010, Professor Albert Zomaya (University of Sydney, Australia) in 2011, Professor David Abramson (Monash University, Australia) in 2012, and Professor Marc Snir (Argonne National Laboratory, USA) in 2013.
More details of the award can be found at the IEEE TCSC website: https://www.ieeetcsc.org/awards/award_for_excellence
Nominations: A candidate may be nominated by colleagues/TCSC members or may nominate him/her-self. An individual can nominate at most one candidate for this award. The candidate must be an IEEE, IEEE CS, and TCSC member in good standing. Nomination must be submitted online (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tcscexcellence2013). A nomination application (as a single PDF file) should contain the following details:
1. Professional Employment Affiliations: List the nominee's current professional affiliations and titles.
2. Citation: Give a brief citation (thirty words or less) precisely stating the most salient reason(s) why the nominee is qualified for the award.
3. Technical Contributions: Describe the nominee's technical achievements as well as significance and impact. (Max 2 page length)
4. TCSC Contribution: Describe the candidate’s service and specific contributions to TCSC and its community activities. (Max 2 page length)
5. Endorsers: Each nomination must be supported by letter from three at least endorsers. An endorser can endorse only one candidate for this award. The endorsers will be required to comment on the nominee's technical contributions as well as service to the TCSC and its community. It is nominator's responsibility to ensure that endorsement letters are submitted on/before the application deadline.
Award Selection Committee: The award selection committee will consist of past winners, leaders in the field, as well as members of the TCSC Executive Committee. The selection committee member cannot be a nominator or endorser.
Award Presentation Note: The award will presented at the 14th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2014) to be held in Chicago, USA, from May 26-29, 2014. The winner should be available to receive the award in person and present an award acceptance speech, scheduled as a keynote talk at the CCGrid 2014 conference.
