A proposed award for advancements in simulation and modeling in ISV codes

SESSION: A proposed award for advancements in simulation and modeling in ISV codes

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Mark Seager, Benjy Grover, Rob Neely


We will discuss development of a new award aimed solely at Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) who develop software for modeling and simulation. Commercial software is a critical component to many of industry's biggest challenges. As well-understood market trends continue, encouraging ISV’s to keep pace with available parallelism will be critical to the ability of users to investigate increases in problem fidelity and dramatically reduced time to solution. Discussion points include: Will this incentivize ISV's to scale their codes? What are metrics for a review committee? Requirements for inclusion and submission? Structure of prize awards? Like the Gordon Bell prize, the goal is to reward scaling to larger core counts and problem sizes, and measuring progress in parallel programming in the commercial software sector. ISV's and potential vendor sponsors are encouraged to provide input to what we hope will become inducement for a new level of scalability in the ISV marketplace.
