The ACM Fellow Program was established by Council in 1993 to recognize and honor outstanding ACM members for their achievements in computer science and information technology and for their significant contributions to the mission of the ACM. The ACM Fellows serve as distinguished colleagues to whom the ACM and its members look for guidance and leadership as the world of information technology evolves.
The ACM Council endorsed the establishment of a Fellows Program and provided guidance to the ACM Fellows Committee, taking the view that the program represents a concrete benefit to which any ACM member might aspire, and provides an important source of role models for existing and prospective ACM Members. The program is managed by the ACM Fellows Committee as part of the general ACM Awards program administered by Calvin C. Gotlieb and James J. Horning. For details on Fellows nominations, see p. 19.
The men and women honored as ACM Fellows have made critical contributions toward and continue to exhibit extraordinary leadership in the development of the Information Age and will be inducted at the ACM Awards Banquet on June 26, 2010, in San Francisco, CA. These 47 new inductees bring the total number of ACM Fellows to 722 (see www.acm.org/awards/fellows/ for the complete listing of ACM Fellows).
Their works span all horizons in computer science and information technology: from the theoretical realms of numerical analysis, combinatorial mathematics and algorithmic complexity analysis; through provinces of computer architecture, integrated circuits and firmware spanning personal computer to supercomputer design; into the limitless world of software and networking that makes computer systems work and produces solutions and results that are usefuland funfor people everywhere.
Their technical papers, books, university courses, computing programs, and hardware for the emerging computer/communications amalgam reflect the powers of their vision and their ability to inspire colleagues and students to drive the field forward. The members of the ACM are all participants in building the runways, launching pads, and vehicles of the global information infrastructure.
