 Sent to CCL by: "Carlos  Simmerling" [carlos.simmerling##gmail.com]
 Applications are open for 3 types of awards from the ACS Division of Computers
 in Chemistry, to be awarded at the Spring 2011 national meeting in Anaheim. The
 deadline is October 15, 2010.
 CCG Research Excellence award (graduate students)
 HP Outstanding Junior Faculty Award (tenure-track Assistant Professors)
 ACS Graduate Award in Supercomputing (graduate students)
 CCG
 Five $1,150 CCG Excellence Student Travel Award Stipends Available for the
 Spring 2011 Anaheim ACS National Meeting
 The CCG Excellence Awards have been created to stimulate graduate student
 participation in ACS COMP Division activities (symposia and poster sessions) at
 ACS National Meetings. Those eligible for a CCG Excellence Award are graduate
 students in good standing who present work within the COMP program, either in
 oral or poster format. Winners receive $1,150, as well as a copy of CCG's MOE
 (Molecular Operating Environment) software with a one-year license. They are
 also honored during a ceremony at the COMP Division Poster Session.
 Up to 5 awardees will be chosen on the basis of the quality and significance of
 the research to be presented, as well as the strength of the supporting letter
 and other materials. All graduate students of the Americas (North, South or
 Central) are encouraged to submit applications. Awards will be given only to
 those individuals making presentations, not co-authors. There is a limit of one
 CCG award application per research lab (PI). Previous winners are not eligible.
 To apply for an award for the ACS National Meeting in Anaheim, CA, March 27-21,
 2011, an extended abstract of the work (no more than 2 pages), a two page CV
 along with a letter of support from the research advisor, and a personal
 statement (no more than 1 page) should be sent as pdf or text files to
 carlos.simmerling###gmail.com. A single pdf file is preferred. You must include
 your last name and the type of information (CV, abstract, etc.) in the file
 name. The application deadline is 5pm EDT on October 15. Applicants will receive
 email confirmation of receipt of materials. If you do not receive confirmation
 by October 19, 2010, please contact the organizer immediately by telephone (see
 below).
 In addition, you must submit your normal poster abstract to the "Chemical
 Computing Group Excellence Award" symposium on the ACS PACS system prior to
 the PACS deadline. Note that you MUST APPLY TWICE: email your application, and
 submit an abstract to PACS. Both must be submitted before their respective
 deadlines. Do not submit your PACS abstract to the standard poster session- it
 must be submitted for the CCG session or your application will not be
 considered.

 HP
 The ACS COMP Outstanding Junior Faculty Award program provides $1,000 to up to
 four outstanding tenure-track junior faculty members to present their work in
 COMP symposia at ACS National Meetings.  The Awards are designed to assist new
 faculty members in gaining visibility within the COMP community.  Award
 certificates and $1,000 prizes will be presented at the COMP Poster session.
 While special consideration will be given to Assistant Professors presenting
 work in the area of algorithm and methods development, applications for
 Outstanding Junior Faculty Awards are invited from all current tenure-track
 junior faculty who are members of ACS and the ACS Division of Computers in
 Chemistry.  Postdoctoral researchers in transition to faculty appointments may
 also be considered. Selection criteria will include the novelty and importance
 of the work to be presented, CV of the applicant, as well as the level of
 Departmental support as indicated by the applicant's department Chair or Chair
 designee.
 To apply for an award for the ACS National Meeting in Anaheim, CA, March 27-21,
 2011, an extended abstract of the work (no more than 2 pages), a CV and the
 letter of departmental support should be sent as pdf or text files to
 carlos.simmerling###gmail.com. You must include your last name and the type of
 information (CV, abstract, etc.) in the file name. A single pdf file with all
 materials is preferable.
 The application deadline is 5pm EDT on October 15. Applicants will receive email
 confirmation of receipt of materials. If you do not receive confirmation by
 October 19, 2010, please contact the organizer immediately by telephone (see
 below).
 In addition, you must submit your normal poster abstract to the
 "Outstanding Junior Faculty Award" symposium on the ACS PACS system
 prior to the PACS deadline. Note that you MUST APPLY TWICE: email your
 application, and submit an abstract to PACS. Both must be submitted before their
 respective deadlines. Do not submit your PACS abstract to the standard poster
 session- it must be submitted for the HP session or your application will not be
 considered.
 We also suggest that HP award applicants submit a separate abstract to PACS for
 an oral presentation in a relevant session, in addition to their poster abstract
 in the HP award section (note that acceptance into the oral sessions is not
 guaranteed).

 Supercomputing
  Graduate Student Awards in Supercomputing to be awarded at the Spring 2011
 Anaheim ACS National Meeting
 The ACS Graduate Student Award in Supercomputing has been created to provide
 supercomputer resources to outstanding students in the early stages of their
 graduate career, particularly for projects that need high performance computing
 resources for their chemistry-related project. Those eligible for the award are
 graduate students in good standing who are carrying out research in the broadly
 defined area of computational chemistry. Winners (or their adviser, if
 necessary) will be the Principal Investigator of a new account on the kraken
 supercomputer at the National Institute of Computational Sciences (NICS). They
 will also be honored during a ceremony at the COMP Division poster session.
 Applicants are encouraged (but not required) to present work within the COMP
 program at the meeting, either in oral or poster format.
 Up to 2 awardees will be chosen on the basis of: the significance of the project
 plan, potential impact on the project of additional supercomputer resources,
 qualifications of the student, and the strength of the supporting letter and
 other materials.
 Application requirements for the ACS National Meeting in Anaheim include an
 extended abstract of the work (no more than 1 page), a two page CV, a brief
 letter of support from the research advisor, and a 1 page detailed computational
 plan indicating: computational resources already available for the project, the
 types of calculations to be performed, availability of software, justification
 of number and length of runs, and an estimate of the total time needed (up to
 200,000 CPU hours maximum). Please include your last name and the type of
 information (CV, abstract, etc.) in the file name. For information about kraken,
 see http://www.nics.tennessee.edu/computing-resources/kraken.
 There is a limit of one Supercomputing Award application per research lab (PI)
 per award type.
 These should be sent as pdf or text files (no other formats accepted) to
 carlos.simmerling###gmail.com. A single pdf file is preferred. Please include
 your last name and the type of information (CV, abstract, etc.) in the file
 name. The application deadline is 5pm EDT on October 15. Applicants will receive
 email confirmation of receipt of materials. If you do not receive confirmation
 by October 19, 2010, please contact the organizer immediately by telephone (see
 below).
 If you want to present your work in an oral or poster presentation, you must
 also submit your abstract using the ACS PACS system, prior to the PACS deadline.
 Application for the supercomputing award does not constitute an application for
 a presentation.
