SIAM SIAG/Supercomputing Best Paper Prize 2016
Laura Grigori and her co-authors, Professors James Demmel, Mark Hoemmen, and Julien Langou have being selected to receive the 2016 SIAM SIAG/Supercomputing Best Paper Prize for their paper, “Communication-Optimal Parallel and Sequential QR and LU Factorizations,” published in SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing 2012.
The prize committee states: “This is a cornerstone paper in Numerical Linear Algebra and Parallel Processing that lays down both theoretical and practical algorithmic frameworks for communication-avoiding algorithms. The paper provides powerful insights and renews attention on communication reduction both of which will have long-lasting and practical impact in parallel and distributed computing.”
The SIAM SIAG/SC Best Paper Prize, established in 2015, is awarded to the authors of the most outstanding paper, as determined by the prize committee, in the field of parallel scientific and engineering computing. Candidate papers must be nominated by at least two individuals and must have been published in English in a peer-reviewed journal bearing a publication date within the four calendar years prior to the year of the award and making significant contributions in parallel scientific and engineering computing.
