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