Just before the kick-off of the opening gala for the SC16 international supercomputing conference, HPCwire unveiled the winners of the 2016 HPCwire Editors’ Choice Awards. Each year, this awards program recognizes the best and the brightest developments that have happened in high performance computing over the past 12 months. Selected by a panel of HPCwire editors and thought leaders in HPC, these awards are highly coveted as prestigious recognition of achievements by the HPC community.

Traditionally revealed and presented each year to kick off the Supercomputing Conference (SC16), which showcases high performance computing, networking, storage, and data analysis, the awards are an annual feature of the publication and spotlight outstanding breakthroughs and achievements in HPC.

Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications, the publisher of HPCwire, announced the list of winners in Salt Lake City, UT.

“From thought leaders to end users, the HPCwire readership reaches and engages every corner of the high performance computing community,” said Tabor. “Receiving their recognition signifies community support across the entire HPC space, as well as the breadth of industries it serves.
