CRD Staff Receive Three Best Paper Awards in One Week

December 4, 2019

Several staff in the Computational Research Division’s Performance Algorithms Group were authors on three papers that received Best Paper Awards at three separate events in a single week in November - all in Denver, Colorado. Two were awarded at workshops held concurrently with SC19:

  • Honzhang Shan was first author on “Accelerating the Performance of Modal Aerosol Module of E3SM using Open ACC,” which was presented at the Sixth Workshop on Accelerator Programming Using Directives (WACCPD). One of his co-authors was Zhengii Zhao of NERSC.
  • Nan Ding and Samuel Williams were the co-authors of “An Instruction Roofline Model for GPUs,” which was presented at Performance Modeling, Benchmarking and Simulation of High Performance Computer Systems (PMBS19).

In addition, Khaled Ibrahim, Williams, and Leonid Oliker were the co-authors of “Performance Analysis of GPU Programming Models Using the Roofline Scaling Trajectories,” which was won the Best Paper Award at Bench 2019: The 2019 International Symposium on Benchmarking, Measuring and Optimizing. Bench ‘19 took place in Denver prior to SC19.

About Berkeley Lab

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 14 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit
