Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

NSF Alan T. Waterman Award

May 29th, 2009 / in Uncategorized / by Ed Lazowska

waterman_f1The NSF Alan T. Waterman Award recognizes one extraordinary young scientist or engineer annually.   Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and must be 35 years of age or younger or not more than 7 years beyond receipt of the Ph.D. degree by December 31 of the year in which they are nominated.  Nominations are due in early December.

In the 30+ year history of this award, fewer than a half dozen computer scientists have been recognized.  A principal reason is we don’t nominate many people.  Let’s change that!  It’s too early to submit nominations, but it’s not too early to start thinking about who you’d be willing to nominate.

Information on the Waterman Award is on the NSF web here.
