Sidney Fernbach Award

Sidney Fernbach Award

The Sidney Fernbach Award is an award given to an individual for an outstanding contribution in the application of high performance computers using innovative approaches. The winner receives a certificate and US$2,000.

Sid Fernbach, by training a physicist, was the Division Chief at LLNL responsible for Computation.
