On 16 May, at the closing plenary of PRACEdays19, Serge Bogaerts, Chair of the EuroHPC Summit Week Organisation & Programme Committee, and managing Director of PRACE aisbl, presented the following four PRACE awards to excellent scientists and researchers:

  • The PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC was presented to astrophysicist Debora Sijacki of the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. Debora Sijacki could not be present in person, but sent a video recording of her presentation. More information on her work can be found at the PRACE website.
  • The PRACE Best Scientific Presentation Award went to Michele Buzzicotti of the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy for his presentation on "Energy Cascade in Rotating Turbulent Flows" during the PRACEdays19 scientific parallel track on physics.
  • The PRACE Best Industrial Presentation Award was awarded to Oriol Lehmkuhl of Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) for his presentation on "High Fidelity Simulation of Vortex Induced Vibrations for Flow Control and Energy Harvesting" which summarised the results of the VIVALdI project.
  • Martin Golasowski of IT4Innovation national supercomputing center and VSB - Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic won the PRACE Best Poster Award for his poster entitled "Distributed Environment for Traffic Simulations".
All information, abstracts, presentations, and other details about the EuroHPC Summit Week 2019 and its composing events and sessions can be found at the PRACE website.
