Winning entries will receive a special certificate and a nominal monetary prize and will present their work during the contest session at the conference. The length of the oral presentation is still to be determined but is likely to be similar to a short paper or presentation as part of the HPC Analytics Challenge session in the Technical Programs schedule. Also, plans and preparations will be undertaken such that winning entries would also show their applications "live" at the SC|05 Conference.
We will award prizes for best entries in several categories. The judges will decide on the exact categories based on the material received - possibilities include "Best Overall", "Best Student Entry", and "Most Original".
Honorable Mentions will be forwarded on to the Technical Programs Committee for consideration for being presented as interactive posters at the conference.
Important Note: All award winners are required to attend SC|05 and participate in the HPC Analytics Challenge activities.
