The NVMW Persistent Impact Prize is awarded annually to a paper published at least five years prior that has had exceptional impact on the fields of study related to non-volatile memories. The award committee interprets both “impact” and “non-volatile memories” broadly. There is no requirement for the work to have been presented at the NVMW. The award includes a $1000 cash prize.
The NVMW Memorable Paper Award is awarded annually to a student paper published in the last two years that is of exceptional quality and is expected to have substantial impact on the fields of study related to non-volatile memories. In 2018, two awards will be given: One in the area of system architectures and applications and another in the area of devices, coding, and information theory.
Mnemosyne is awarded the 2018 Persistent Impact Prize in recognition of its contributions to the foundations of programming with non-volatile main memory. It was among the first to identify the need to address persistent memory as part of the programming model; propose lightweight transactions to support persistence; and handle consistency under failure. The problems it described and the solutions it proposed have influenced the design of most (if not all) of persistent main memory systems that followed it.
