XSEDE Allocations Lead to Multiple HPCWire Awards

Researchers and resources from XSEDE partner institutions earn recognition for energy, physical sciences, data analytics and artificial intelligence at this year's Supercomputing Conference (SC20)

Multiple research projects carried out on XSEDE allocations were recognized via the HPCWire Editors' and Readers' Choice Awards at the Supercomputing (SC) 20 conference this year, including research allocated via the COVID-19 HPC Consortium, whose allocations process is administered by XSEDE staff utilizing the XSEDE Resource Allocations System (XRAS).

"XSEDE has been a recipient of HPCwire awards for several years and this has not only allowed the recognition for our partners, but to also recognize the role of organizations such as XSEDE play in catalyzing research," said John Towns, principal investigator of the XSEDE Project. "The awards are viewed as prestigious by the broader advanced computing community, and XSEDE is honored to be associated with these excellent efforts."  

The awards, annually distributed at the SC Conference, highlight the best of the current HPC landscape, from academia to industry to research and everything in between. You can read the full list of winners here, via HPCWire.
