CRAY RESEARCH SPONSORS AWARD HONORING PIONEERS USING COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE

 CRAY RESEARCH SPONSORS AWARD HONORING
 PIONEERS USING COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE
 WASHINGTON, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- At a black-tie ceremony for the Computerworld Smithsonian Awards last night, Cray Research (NYSE: CYR) announced that next year the company will sponsor a Benefactor Award, the highest level of sponsorship. The Cray Research Information Technology Leadership Award for Computational Science will be presented at the 1993 Computerworld Smithsonian Awards ceremony.
 "For centuries, scientists and researchers have relied on theory and physical experimentation to understand and shape the world. But now, in our lifetimes, we're witnessing something truly remarkable," said Joseph Gloudeman, vice president of marketing at Cray Research. "Computational science, the use of supercomputers to model complex problems that otherwise cannot be solved, is changing the way scientists and researchers do their work. We are very excited about our award, which will pay tribute to the breakthrough work of pioneers leading this fundamental change in science."
 Established in 1989, the Computerworld Smithsonian Core Program Awards recognizes and publicly honors information technology innovations that have contributed to social progress. Winning entries are selected in ten categories, and are showcased in a major permanent exhibit on the history of information technology at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of American History. The names of the winners are permanently listed in the museum, and a database on information technology is maintained as a research tool for future applications.
 The Benefactors Program was established in 1990 by the Computerworld Smithsonian Foundation to honor each year a few individuals whose outstanding leadership in information technology has significantly contributed to solving important industrial, cultural and social problems. In addition to the Cray Research Information Technology Award for Computational Science, there are three other Benefactor Awards: The Price Waterhouse Information Technology Award for Lifetime Achievement; The Computerworld Smithsonian Information Technology Leadership Award for Science Education; and The MCI Information Technology Award for Innovation.
 Benefactors such as Cray Research establish their own nominating committees, with a maximum of eight members who must be approved by the Foundation. Each member may submit up to four nominations. The winner is selected by the Computerworld Smithsonian Foundation.
 Cray Research has been involved with the Technology Leadership Awards since 1991. Last year, the company submitted nominations for the general award program and contributed $20,000 to the program. This year, John Rollwagen, chairman and chief executive officer of Cray Research, was a member of the MCI Benefactors Award nominating committee.
 Cray Research creates the most powerful, highest-quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
