Sam Hatfield awarded Best Paper Prize at PASC '19

Sam Hatfield has won the prize for the best paper submitted to the Platform for Advanced Supercomputing (PASC) conference 2019, a leading high-performance computing conference in Europe. The paper, co-authored with Matthew Chantry, Peter Dueben and Tim Palmer, investigated the potential for accelerating Legendre transforms within high resolution spectral weather models, such as the ECMWF model IFS, using reduced-precision arithmetic. The prize recognizes cutting edge work within the broad discipline of applied high-performance computing.
Sam will present his results in a plenary talk at the conference taking place in Zurich this June and will receive a small prize at the closing session.
