To promote Parallel Computing the Mannheim Supercomputing Conference "Supercomputer '97" herewith announces the Mannheim SuParCup '97 which will be awarded at the Mannheim Supercomputer '97 Conference, June 19-21, 1997.
The award should appeal to anyone with experience in the use of parallel computers - including MPP, SMP, PVP systems and workstation clusters - for the solution of real problems.
The Award will be dedicated to an outstanding contribution in the field of parallel computing, e.g.:
Three prices will be awarded:
A special student prize of 2000 DM will be awarded for the best contribution of a non-graduate in order to promote first steps in the field of parallel computing.
The deadline for the contributions is May 25, 1997. The size should be 4 to 5 pages, including the description of the problem, the algorithm, the parallel approach, the machine configuration, and the results (problem size, number of processors, CPU and communication time, etc.).
