Bill Pugh Receives ACM/IEEE Supercomputing "Test of Time" Award

Emeritus Professor Bill Pugh has received the first ACM/IEEE Supercomputing "Test of Time" award for his paper in Supercomputing 91: "The Omega test: a fast and practical
integer programming algorithm for dependence analysis". The paper was selected from all the papers published at the Supercomputing conference between 1988
(the first Supercomputing conference) and 2003. This is the first time the award has been granted, in celebration of Supercomputing's 25th anniversary. 

Bill will receive the award and give an award talk at Supercomputing 2013 on November 21st.

The “Test of Time” award recognizes a paper from a past conference that has deeply influenced the HPC discipline. It is a mark of historical impact, and
requires clear evidence that the paper has changed HPC trends.  The award will be started at SC13, as part of the celebration of SC's 25th anniversary. It
will be presented annually to a single paper, selected from the conference proceedings of 10-25 years ago.
