Influential NAS Parallel Benchmarks Paper Selected for SC15 Test of Time Award

05.21.15 – The Supercomputing Conference (SC15) Test of Time Award Committee has recognized the 1991 paper "The NAS Parallel Benchmarks - Summary and Preliminary Results" with the SC15 Test of Time Award for this year. The NAS Parallel Benchmarks (NPB) were developed in response to NASA's increasing involvement with massively parallel architectures and the need for a more rational procedure to select supercomputers to support agency missions. The NPBs quickly became an industry standard and have since been implemented in many modern programming paradigms. Read More
