Best Paper and Poster Awards

Each year, the SC Technical Papers Committee identifies one paper as the best paper from the Conference's Technical Program. Additionally,  the SC Technical Papers Committee identifies one paper as the best paper written primarily by a student or students and presented in the Conference's Technical Program. Papers must be identified as student papers when submitted to be eligible for this award. 

The SC Posters Committee identifies one poster as the best poster presented as part of the Conference's Technical Program. This award is distinct from those selected through  the ACM Student Research Competition.

These awards will be announced at the SC15 awards ceremony.
