ISC is introducing the Hans Meuer Award to honor the most outstanding research paper submitted to the ISC High Performance conference’s research paper committee. This annual award has been created in memory of the late Dr. Hans Meuer, general chair of the ISC conference from 1986 through 2014, and co-founder of the TOP500 project.
For 26 years, Mauer was director of the computing center and professor of computer science at the University of Mannheim, Germany and, in 1986, Mauer became co‐founder and organizer of the first Mannheim Super Computer Seminar (later since 2001 known as the International Supercomputing Conference – ISC), which has been held annually ever since. In 1993, Meuer started the TOP500 initiative together with Erich Strohmaier (previously at the University of Mannheim, currently at LBNL in Berkeley) and Jack Dongarra (University of Tennessee and ORNL), which provides a ranked list of general purpose systems that are in common use for high-end applications. From 1998 to 2013, he served as managing director of Prometeus GmbH that manages all ISC events.

From all research papers submitted, the members of the ISC High Performance Research Paper Committee will consider the three papers that receive the highest review scores for the 2015 Hans Meuer Award, and they will elect the winner among them. This year’s winner will be announced in July 2015 at the ISC High Performance opening session and will be given the opportunity to present a keynote talk on their work in one of the conference’s research paper sessions. The winner will also receive a cash prize of 3,000 Euro, an award certificate, and a free conference pass for the 2016 ISC High Performance conference.
