Celebrating Our Experts
In June 2016, Mark Dietrich, President and CEO at Compute Canada, announced the latest recipients of the Compute Canada Awards of Excellence in recognition of outstanding support provided to the Canadian research community. The awards presentation took place at an Awards Gala as part of the annual High Performance Computing Symposium (HPCS) in Edmonton, Alberta.
This event recognizes and celebrates exceptional advanced research computing support and expertise. From coast to coast, more than 200 team members are distributed across Compute Canada’s four regions, many employed by universities, enabling them to work closely with their local research communities.
