SC20 Best Paper Award

The C3SR student, Mert Hidayetoglu, and C3SR faculty, Prof. Wen-mei Hwu, together with their collaborators have won the Best Paper Award at SC20, for their paper, titled “Petascale XCT: 3D Image Reconstruction with Hierarchical Communications on Multi-GPU Nodes”.

This year, SC20 accepted 95 papers for its proceedings, after an extensive double-blind review of 378 submissions. Nine papers were nominated for the best paper award, and the paper led by Mert Hidayetoglu won the award.

“_The committee chose this paper for its potential impact in life sciences, the strong algorithmic contributions, good teamwork, and the open-source nature of both software and its data,” says Rudolf Eigenmann (University of Delaware) at the awards ceremony of SC20.

Congratulations, Mert and Wen-mei!
