Propose a name for the post-K computer!

The RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) is calling for proposals for the name of the successor to the K computer, often referred to as the post-K computer, which is currently under development with the target to start providing shared use service around the year 2021. The key ideas that the center hopes to convey through the new name are first, the idea that RIKEN is a world-class research institute operating a state-of-the–art supercomputer, and secondly, that the name should be something that is attractive not only to Japanese speakers but to people around the world. The deadline is April 8. For further information including guidelines for applications, please visit the R-CCS website.
