ACM SIGSOFT Influential Educator Award


Event Date: NA
Hosting Institution: SIGSOFT
Submission Deadline: December 15, 2014
Summary: Education is vital to the advancement of the research and practice of Software Engineering. Yet, the contributions of an educator often go unnoticed, except perhaps by those closest to the educator. The SIGSOFT Influential Educator Award will be presented annually to an educator or educators who have made significant contributions to, and impact on, the field of software engineering with his/her accomplishments as a teacher, mentor, researcher (in education or learning), author, and/or policy maker. The award may be made to multiple collaborators for joint contributions, such as a co-authored text book. Recipients receive a plaque engraved with their name and signed by the chair of SIGSOFT along with a $1000 honorarium. The award is presented by the SIGSOFT chair at ICSE during ICSE's award presentation session. The award recipient also receives support for travel to ICSE up to $2500 within their home continent and up to $3000 outside their home continent, including airfare, hotel, and conference registration for ICSE. To submit a nomination for the award, please use the awards nomination portal. Nominations are due no later than December 15 of each year.



U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools Postsecondary Sustainability Awards


Event Date: NA
Hosting Institution: U.S. Department of Education
Submission Deadline: February 01, 2015
Summary: U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools (ED-GRS) has introduced a new Postsecondary Sustainability Award for the 2014-2015 cycle. For this award, state selection committees are particularly encouraged to document how the nominees’ sustainability work has reduced college costs, increased completion rates, led to employment, and ensured robust civic skills among graduates; and to make an effort to consider diverse types of institutions. Interested colleges and universities should contact their state higher education authorities for information on how to apply in their states. Like the PK-12 awards, this category is entirely voluntary. Hearing from interested colleges and universities may be helpful to state authorities considering 2014 - 2015 participation. State higher education authorities should contact U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools for more information. They can find updated criteria and other state implementation guidance on our website. For more information, visit http://www2.ed.gov/programs/green-ribbon-schools/eligibility.html. 




The following awards are given at the November Supercomputing Conference each year:



ACM Gordon Bell Prize


The Gordon Bell Prize is awarded each year to recognize outstanding achievement in high-performance computing. The purpose of the award is to track the progress over time of parallel computing, with particular emphasis on rewarding innovation in applying high-performance computing to applications in science, engineering, and large-scale data analytics. Prizes may be awarded for peak performance or special achievements in scalability and time-to-solution on important science and engineering problems. Financial support of the $10,000 award is provided by Gordon Bell, a pioneer in high-performance and parallel computing. For more information, please visit http://awards.acm.org/bell/ .




IEEE Seymour Cray and Sidney Fernbach Awards


The Seymour Cray Computer Science and Engineering Award recognizes innovative contributions to HPC systems that best exemplify the creative spirit of Seymour Cray. The Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award honors innovative uses of HPC in problem solving. Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, these prestigious honors are presented during special sessions held during the conference.
