IPDPS Babbage Award

At IPDPS 2015 on May 27th in Hyderabad, India, the Charles Babbage Award was presented to Alan Edelman, in "in recognition of his innovative contributions to parallel numerical algorithms and parallel programming."

BRIEF HISTORY OF CONFERENCE
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.

HISTORY OF THE CHARLES BABBAGE AWARD
In 1989, the conference established the Charles Babbage Award to be given each year to a conference participant in recognition of exceptional contributions to the field. It was named for Charles Babbage (26 December 1791 – 18 October 1871), an English mathematician, philosopher, inventor and mechanical engineer who originated the concept of a programmable computer and was considered a "father" of the computer. (Reference: Wikipedia)
In almost all cases, the award is given to one of the invited keynote speakers at the conference. The selection is made by the steering committee chairs, upon recommendation from the Program Chair and General Chair who have been responsible for the technical program of the conference, including inviting the speakers. It is presented immediately following the selected speaker's presentation at the conference, and he or she is given a plaque that specifies the nature of their special contribution to the field that is being recognized by IPDPS.
