ACM Names Four College of Computing Faculty out of 30 Fellows as Information Technology Achievers
January 4, 2004
Four College of Computing (CoC) faculty help comprise 30 new Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Fellows selected this year for their contributions in computer science and information technology. CoC’s Mostafa Ammar, Rich DeMillo, Mary Jean Harrold and Ramesh Jain join a distinguished list of colleagues from leading universities, corporations and research labs throughout the world to whom ACM and its members look for guidance and leadership.
Reflecting the scope and extent of the computing field, the 2003 ACM Fellows were cited for contributions to everything from wireless telecommunications to network services, bioinformatics, Internet architecture, secure database management, and artificial intelligence, among others.
“This year’s ACM Fellows join the ranks of outstanding ACM members who have contributed to the computing community through distinguished service and significant achievements in information technology,” said John White, CEO of ACM. “By their contributions, they have advanced the computing discipline and its increasingly critical role in society in countless ways."
It is quite impressive and possibly an unprecedented honor to have four of the 30 ACM Fellows from one institution, so Congratulations to CoC Faculty, and specifically to:
Mostafa Ammar - For contributions to the design of systems and protocols for scalable network services.
Richard DeMillo - For contributions to the engineering of reliable and secure software.
Mary Jean Harrold - For contributions in software engineering.
Ramesh Jain - For contributions to computer vision and multimedia information systems.
ACM will formally recognize the new Fellows at its annual Awards Banquet in the spring of 2004. Additional information about the ACM 2003 Fellows, the awards event, as well as previous ACM Fellows and award winners is available at www.acm.org/awards.
Initiated in 1993, the Fellows program celebrates the exceptional contributions of the leading members in the computing field. These individuals have helped to enlighten researchers, developers, practitioners and end-users of information technology throughout the world. They reflect the makeup of ACM’s diverse membership roster, with representation from men and women, from universities and corporations, from North America and abroad.
