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.

2015 ACM Fellows Announced

December 8th, 2015 / in Announcements / by Khari Douglas

ACM logo The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has released their annual list of ACM Fellows. The 2015 ACM Fellows list recognizes 42 ACM members for their significant contributions to the development and application of computing in key computing fields including software research, data mining, computer graphics, computer and mobile systems, system security, multiprocessor and memory architecture design, and research in sensor networks.

Whether they work in leading universities, corporations, or research laboratories, these newly minted ACM Fellows are responsible for the breakthroughs and industrial innovations that are transforming society at every level, explains ACM President Alexander L. Wolf. At times, the contributions of a Fellow may include enhancements to a device that immediately impacts our daily lives. At other times, new research discoveries lead to theoretical advances that, while perhaps not immediately perceptible, have substantial long-term impacts.

Congratulations to all of these highly accomplished fellows, especially Vice Chair of the CCC Elizabeth Mynatt and CCC Council member Cynthia Dwork!
