ACM Bulletin Service
Today's Topic: Eckert-Mauchly Award Honors Processor Architect
April 14, 2009

Joel Emer is to receive the prestigious Eckert-Mauchly Award for pioneering contributions to performance analysis, modeling methodologies, and design innovations in several significant industry microprocessors. Emer developed quantitative methods including measurement of real machines, analytical modeling, and simulation techniques that are now widely employed to evaluate the performance of complex computer processors.

He was also cited for his ability to bridge the gaps that often mark research and development as well as academia and industry. Emer will receive the 2009 Eckert-Mauchly Award, known as the most prestigious award in the computer architecture community, at the International Symposium on Computer Architecture, June 20-24, in Austin, TX.

The Eckert-Mauchly Award is given for contributions to computer and digital systems architecture, and is co-sponsored by ACM and IEEE-CS.
