ACM / IEEE-CS Joint Awards
Both the ACM and IEEE-CS recognize technical excellence through their award programs. Two awards, however, are jointly sponsored by ACM and IEEE-CS:
- Eckert-Mauchly Award:
Administered jointly by ACM and IEEE-CS, the Eckert-Mauchly Award is given for contributions to computer and digital systems architecture where the field of computer architecture is considered at present to encompass the combined hardware-software design and analysis of computing and digital systems. Recipients receive a monetary award of $5,000. This Award has been in existence since 1979.
- ACM - IEEE CS Ken Kennedy Award:
Awarded annually, the ACM - IEEE CS Ken Kennedy Award recognizes substantial contributions to programmability and productivity in computing and substantial community service or mentoring contributions. The recipient gives a presentation, normally technical, at the SC conference at which it is announced, or at an ACM or IEEE conference of the winner’s choosing during the year following the announcement. The award includes a $5,000 honorarium. This Award has been in existence since 2009.
