SPEC Looking For A Few Good Applications

SPEC logo - spec.org

SPEC, the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation, is looking for realistic OpenMP applications to include in the next version of the SPEC CPU and SPEC OMP benchmark suites.

SPEC is sponsoring a search program, and for each step of the process that a submission passes, SPEC will compensate the Program Submitter (in recognition of the Submitter’s effort and skill). A submission that passes all of the steps and is included in the next SPEC CPU benchmark suite will receive $5000 US overall and a license for the new benchmark suite when released.   Details on the Benchmark Search Program at: http://www.spec.org/cpuv6/.
