For a complete and final listing of all the contest rules for the Open Education Cup go to (External Link) .

Contest awards

A panel of experts in high performance computing and parallel programming will be named to serve as judges for the contest. Each module will be reviewed by at least three impartial judges. The judges select one in each of the five (5) subject categories (as defined in the Contest Rules section) as the Best module, resulting in five (5) Best module awards total. In addition the judges can select any number of entries for the distinction of Honorable Mention . Judging criteria will be posted at the Open Education Cup web page.

In each category, there will be a first prize of $500. At the judges’ discretion, other modules in the category may be identified for Honorable Mention. An on-line collection, which may be printed as a book, will highlight all modules that received either recognition.

Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors (BP, Chevron, Connexions, NVIDIA, Rice, Sun Microsystems, Total S.A. and WesternGeco), we will be awarding prizes to contest winners according to the following guidelines:

  • Each of the five (5) modules selected as Best will receive a prize in the amount of US $500.
  • A contestant may only receive one prize in the category Best .
  • A contestant may be nominated for and receive more than one Honorable Mention .
  • A module with multiple authors must designate one author as the lead author. If a module with multiple authors is selected to receives one of the prizes the organizer will issue the prize to the lead author. It is the sole responsibility of the lead author in collaboration with the co-authors to agree on how to divide the prize.
  • A Connexions collection (book) containing all the modules given the distinction Best and Honorable Mention will be created and made available inthe Connexions repository after the end of the contest.
  • All awards will be publicized on the Open Education Cup contest website, through the published collection referenced above, open education conferences, appropriate HPC conferences focused on education and content creation and other promotional materials.

Judging criteria

A panel of distinguished parallel computing experts from academia and industry will read and judge all modules. Modules within a category will only be compared against other modules in the same category (e.g. Parallel Architecture modules will not be compared to Parallel Software Tools modules). The primary judging criteria will be:

  • Appropriateness: The module should be relevant to the category in which it is entered, as well as to parallel computing generally. Its topic should be considered of some importance in the field, though it need not be “the” central concept.
  • Correctness: The module should be technically accurate and cite external references where appropriate. Where there is controversy in a field, it may take a particular stand. However, it should note where there are significant differences with other sources.
  • Clarity: The module should be easy for a learner to understand. Where appropriate, it should note any prerequisite knowledge. A module may target any audience from elementary school to graduate student.
  • Presentation: The module should make good use of formatting and auxiliary files. It need not use every feature of Connexions (e.g. bibliographies, graphics support, equations), but where a feature is used it should be attractive (e.g. clearly legible figures). Creative use of multimedia enhancements of the material is encouraged.

Maira Reply
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
I think
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
