The PEARC20 conference continues the tradition to recognize high-quality submissions. Below you will find the PEARC20 Award winners in different categories. Congratulations!
Phil Andrews Award
The Phil Andrews award is granted to a manuscript deemed to be the most impactful in practice of research computing, broadly interpreted to encompass all areas in scientific research, technical innovation, state of practice and workforce development. Determination of the award is made by the Technical Program subcommittee jury from the best papers awarded in all tracks. Identifying a winner from excellent candidate papers was especially hard, nonetheless the jury’s decision was unanimous and represents the finest contribution to the ACM PEARC20 conference.
