August 18, 2011: ACM Extends Deadline for 2011 Fellows Nominations
Today's Topic: ACM Extends Deadline for 2011
Thursday, August 18, 2011
The nomination deadline for Fellows, ACM's most prestigious member grade, has been extended to September 6, 2011. Candidates are selected from nominations made by current ACM Professional Members and supported by five endorsers who know the candidate personally and are ACM Professional Members. The ideal candidate will demonstrate distinguished capabilities in 1) Personal technical accomplishments; 2) Technical leadership; and 3) ACM and community service.
ACM's goal is for Fellows to represent the top one percent of ACM membership. Fellows are part of ACM's respected recognition program, which sets high standards for technical and professional achievement, and raises awareness of the many technological innovations achieved by computing professionals that enrich lives and advance society.
