Prêmio Seymour Cray
O Prêmio Seymour Cray (em inglês: Seymour Cray Computer Science and Engineering Award ou Seymour Cray Award), é um prêmio concedido em reconhecimento a contribuições significativas e inovadoras no campo da computação de alta performance. O prêmio gratifica cientistas que exibem a criatividade demonstrada por Seymour Cray, fundador da Cray Research e pioneiro da supercomputação, O laureado recebe um troféu de cristal, um certificado e US$ 10.000.
