AWARDS

Vivek Sarkar Named 2020 ACM-IEEE CS Ken Kennedy Award Recipient
ACM and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS) have named Vivek Sarkar as the recipient of the 2020 
ACM-IEEE CS Ken Kennedy Award. Sarkar was recognized for foundational technical contributions to the area of programmability and productivity in parallel computing, as well as leadership contributions to professional service, mentoring, and teaching. The award will be presented to Sarkar at the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC20) virtual awards plenary session on November 16.

A Fellow of ACM and IEEE, Sarkar is Chair of the School of Computer Science and the Stephen Fleming Chair in the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. ACM and the IEEE Computer Society co-sponsor the Kennedy Award, which was established in 2009 to recognize substantial contributions to programmability and productivity in computing and significant community service or mentoring contributions. It was named for the late Ken Kennedy, founder of Rice University’s computer science program and a world expert on high performance computing. The Kennedy Award carries a US $5,000 honorarium endowed by IEEE-CS and ACM.

Gordon Bell Prizes Awarded at SC20 Conference
A nine-member research team from Chinese and American institutions was awarded the 
2020 ACM Gordon Bell Prize for introducing Deep Potential Molecular Dynamics (DPMD), a new machine learning-based protocol that can simulate a more than 1 nanosecond-long trajectory of over 100 million atoms per day. They were recognized for their project, “Pushing the limit of molecular dynamics with ab initio accuracy to 100 million atoms with machine learning.”
