ISC 2022 to Feature a Special Session Celebrating Jack Dongarra
May 12, 2022 — This special session will celebrate the life and work of Jack Dongarra, who was the recipient of the 2021 ACM AM Turing Award. The award is named for Alan M. Turing, who articulated the mathematical foundation and limits of computing. He is considered by many to be the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. The Turing Award, often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of Computing,” carries a $1 million prize, with financial support provided by Google, Inc.
To celebrate the award, ISC will hold this session to recognize Dongarra’s scientific achievements and contributions to HPC. It will take place on Monday, May 30, and will be chaired by Horst Simon of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Simon will be joined by Tony Hey, Chief Data Scientist, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, STFC, United Kingdom; David Keyes, Director, Extreme Computing, KAUST, Saudi Arabia; and Satoshi Matsuoka, Director, RIKEN Center for Computational Science, Japan, who will offer their own perspectives on Dongarra’s work in benchmarking, linear algebra, and HPC.
The session will be held onsite in Hamburg on Monday, May 30, 2022, at 10:45 AM local time; it will also be streamed live.
