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.
