    1. Purpose of the Committee

The Awards Committee is responsible for the conduct of the currently existing award prizes, fellowships and other symbols of recognition of merit bestowed by ACM as a whole. This includes making appointments to the various award committees, soliciting nominees, selecting winners from among the nominees, and arranging for the formal conferring of the awards, and exploring possibilities of funding awards with outside organizations. The Policies and Guide for establishing an ACM award can be found on: http://www.acm.org/awards/policies.html

The Committee is further responsible for defining and updating the awards structure of ACM and its units by recommending to Council, when appropriate, the establishment of new pro­grams for the recognition of merit, or the modification or discontinuance of existing ones, with the goal of maintaining a balance among the awards recognizing different kinds of meri­torious activities.

All ACM awards must be approved by the ACM Awards Committee. Approval by ACM Council is required before any proper name may be attached to any such award or prize. This authority may not be delegated. Subunit-wide awards, excluding Named Awards, generally do not require ACM Council approval.

The Committee will provide advice to subunits of ACM regarding any award programs con­ducted by them. Subunits engaging in award activities should consult with the Awards Committee concerning the nature and balance among the programs of ACM and its subunits.

The Committee will maintain contact, and as appropriate, exchange information with other professional or technical organizations concerning their awards programs.
1.3 Committee Organization

The Awards Committee is a standing committee of Council, reporting through the President. The ACM Awards Committee consists of the ACM President, the CEO/Executive Director (ex-officio), the Co-Chairs of the Awards Committee, the current chairs of the individual ACM award selection committees, and the ACM SIG Chairs Liaison with the Awards Committee.

Highlights of the meeting follow:

Report from the ACM Awards Committee Co-Chairs


The Award program has been receiving a higher profile within ACM as evidenced by increased recognition with the following awards:

  • This year was notable in that Fran Allen, IBM Fellow Emerita, was awarded the Turing Award, and this was the first time that a woman has been selected for the award.

  • President Stuart Feldman honored Gene Spafford with the ACM President’s Award.

Prior to the meeting, the Awards Committee voted via email to recommend approval of two SIG named awards so that their recommendation could be presented to Council for its June 7 meeting. These awards were SIGPLAN’s John Vlissides Award, and SIGMOD’s Alberto O. Mendelzon Test-of-Time Award.

The third SIG named award, the “A. Richard Newton Technical Impact Award in Electronic Design Automation,” has been rescinded until further notice (SIGDA and the IEEE Council on EDA had proposed the award).

In addition, shortly before the June 9 Awards Banquet, the prize amounts of the following awards were increased:


  • Grace Murray Hopper from $15K to $35K – the financial sponsor is Google.

  • Software System Award from $10K to $35K – the financial sponsor is IBM.

  • Beginning with the 2006 Doctoral Dissertation Award Google has agreed to provide financial sponsorship for the winner of $20K, and $10K for the honorable mention winner (the winner had previously received $5K which was provided by ACM, and there was no monetary prize associated with the honorable mention award).

The ACM Awards Banquet


The annual ACM Awards Banquet was held on Saturday, June 9, 2007 at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, California during the week of FCRC (Federated Computing Research Conference). The reception immediately preceding the banquet was hosted by the Intel Corporation. Fran Allen presented the Turing Lecture Sunday, June 10, 2007.

In the banquet audience of over 200 people were 26 of the 41 new Fellows as well as most of the ACM award winners. ACM’s President Stuart Feldman served as Master of Ceremonies. Among the corporate representatives were: Andrew Chien, Vice President in the Corporate Technology Group and Director of Research at Intel, for the Turing Award; Charles Lickel, IBM Vice President, Software, representing IBM for the Software System Award; Peter Norvig, new ACM Fellow, representing Google; and Rina Dichter University and AAAI Fellow, representing AAAI for the Allen Newell Award.

The 2007 winning team from the 31st World Finals of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC), which took place in Tokyo, March 15, 2007, was recognized at the banquet. The members of the winning team from Warsaw University are Filip Wolski, Marcin Pilipczuk, and Marek Cygan. Also recognized on stage were Professor Jan Madey, the team’s Coach, and their Co-Coach Professor Krzysztof Diks. IBM was represented by one of the new ACM Fellows, Alfred Z. Spector (IBM - retired).

In addition, the following winners of the ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals were recognized:



Graduate Category

First Place: Eugene Borodin, Stony Brook University

Second Place: Emerson Murphy-Hill, Portland State University

Third Place: Bowen Hui, University of Toronto


Undergraduate Category

CRA also presented its 2007 Distinguished Service Award to Peter Freeman, Washington Advisory Group, and John E. Hopcroft, Cornell, and its A. Nico Habermann Award to Jan Cuny, University of Oregon/CISE-NSF. Dr. Hopcroft was not able to attend. These awards were presented by ACM Past President and former CRA Chair, David A. Patterson.


ACM President’s Award

The ACM President’s Awards are awarded to leaders of IT whose actions and achievements serve as paragons for our field. The 2007 recipient is Eugene H. Spafford, Purdue University.

Dr. Spafford was recognized “for his long and effective leadership on issues of computer security and policy, professional responsibility and the Internet.”
Athena Lecturer Award

The Athena Lecturer Award celebrates women researchers who have made fundamental contributions to Computer Science.

ACM’s Committee on Women in Computing (ACM-W) selected Karen Spärck Jones as the second recipient of the Athena Lecturer Award. Dr. Spärck Jones had been Professor Emerita at Cambridge University until her death on April 4, 2007, and was the widow of ACM Fellow Roger Needham.

The Athena Lecture took place at the 30th International SIGIR’07 Conference July 23-27, 2007 in Amsterdam. Dr. Spärck Jones had videotaped her presentation shortly before her untimely death; a portion of the videotape was shown at the ACM Awards Banquet.


Recruitment Plans for New/Younger Members

            The Awards Committee Co-Chairs continue to seek recommendations from the outgoing award subcommittee chairs for members to replace those whose terms are expiring.  In addition to seeking new members whose expertise falls within the criteria for the various awards, the expectation for diversity was typically implied.  The request for recommendations in the future will be more explicit in seeking a more diversified representation over the collection of subcommittees, including taking into account age, gender, and international representation. 



In addition to its efforts to achieve a greater diversity within the award subcommittees, the Awards Committee will seek the assistance of the SIG Chairs to help ensure that the award nominations reflect the diversity in the ACM membership.
