Compute Canada Awards of Excellence


Toronto, ON – January 20, 2017 – Compute Canada launched its annual Awards of Excellence to recognize exceptional contributions made by the advanced research computing experts that help Canada’s research community achieve bigger, better, and faster results.

Compute Canada’s mission is to create and sustain a world-class advanced research computing platform that is accessible by researchers in all disciplines — independent of resource or researcher location. This mission is made possible by Compute Canada’s greatest resource: our people.

As a national organization with a membership that includes more than 37 research universities, Compute Canada has access to a wealth of expertise, drawn from highly trained people and from research institutions across the country. More than 200 staff and support personnel are distributed from coast to coast, and employed by a university or one of Compute Canada’s four regional partners ACENET, Calcul Québec, Compute Ontario and WestGrid.

Researchers, regional directors and Compute Canada team members can nominate Compute Canada experts who provided exceptional support or service to a researcher or research group.

All submissions will be reviewed by Compute Canada’s Senior Management Team.

Each award recipient will receive a $500 cash prize. One recipient will receive a special additional prize for outstanding achievement. The award ceremony will take place at the High Performance Computing Symposium (HPCS) in Kingston this coming June 2017. Recipients will also be featured on Compute Canada’s website and in the newsletter.

Nominations close April 21 – find out more about how to nominate today.
