A University of Sydney IT professor has received global accolades for his longstanding contribution to the development of high performance computing systems that provide the computational speeds needed to model the likes of large DNA structures, forecast global weather patterns and track the motion of astronomical bodies.

Professor Albert Zomaya last week received two awards from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for humanity's benefit. The awards acknowledge his commitment to developing resource allocation algorithms and protocols for parallel and distributed computing

The IEEE awarded Professor Zomaya with the 2011 Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) Outstanding Service Award and Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) Medal of Excellence in Scalable Computing.

Professor Zomaya has been part of the parallel and distributed computing community for more than 20 years and based at the University's School of Information Technologies since 2002. His work has spanned a range of high performance computing technologies such as clusters, grids, data centres and cloud computing systems. These days his research focus is on the development of resource allocation methods for green data centres, aimed at reducing the energy consumption of processors in data centres.

Aside from leading his field with research, Professor Zomaya has published seven books and more than 400 research papers on parallel processing, including the first handbook in the field, first published 15 years ago. He founded the Wiley book series on parallel and distributed computing and is editor in chief of the world's oldest computing journal IEEE Transactions on Computers.

"I feel honoured and very privileged to receive these awards," Professor Zomaya says. "These are prestigious, highly sought after recognitions and researchers in my field consider them important career milestones. What makes these awards very special is that they have never been awarded to the same person in the same year."

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
