HAMBURG, Germany--()--ISC’11 – The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, today announced that Dr. Marco Aldinucci from the University of Torino has received the prestigious HPC Advisory Council Spring 2011 University Award for advanced research in the subject area of high-performance computing for his proposal, ‘Effective Streaming on Multi-core by Way of the FastFlow Framework’. The research activity is a collaboration between scientists and students from both the University of Torino and the University of Pisa in Italy. The researchers include Dr. Marco Aldinucci, Dr. Massimo Torquati, (co-designer of FastFlow), Dr. Eva Sciacca, Dr. Salvatore Spinella and Maurizio Drocco. One of the HPC Advisory Council’s main activities is community and educational outreach and support. The University Award program is an outgrowth of this, and is intended to enhance research in the area of High-Performance Computing.

“Dr. Aldinucci used a novel methodology focused on a high-level stream programming model based on lock-free synchronizations, enabling his proposal to stand out amongst all of the submissions,” said Cydney Stevens, HPC Advisory Council Research Steering Committee Director. “We congratulate Dr. Aldinucci and look forward to providing him the tools and cluster resources necessary to complete his research. We look forward to reviewing future proposals, and working with the winners to highlight their HPC research.”

Twice a year, the HPC Advisory Council will select worthy proposals allowing winners to benefit from a range of the council’s resources and events, including the opportunity to present their final research results to a wider audience. Proposals for the Fall 2011 HPC Advisory Council University Award Program can be submitted today through Nov. 1, 2011.
