Established in memory of Charles Babbage in recognition of significant contributions in the field of parallel computation. The candidate would have made an outstanding, innovative contribution or contributions to parallel computation. It is hoped, but not required, that the winner will have also contributed to the parallel computation community through teaching, mentoring, or community service.

This award covers all aspects of parallel computing including computational aspects, novel applications, parallel algorithms, theory of parallel computation, parallel computing technologies, among others.

A certificate and a $1,000 honorarium presented to a single recipient.  The winner will be invited to present a paper and/or presentation at the annual IEEE-CS International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS).

The IPDPS conference originated in 1986 as an activity of the Orange County (California) Chapter of the IEEE Computer Society Chapter. The founders of the first International Parallel Processing Symposium (IPPS) were primarily engineers from the semiconductor field and academics interested in computer architecture and high performance processing, looking to solve problems of computation through architectural and software innovation.
