today announced the winners of three awards honoring significant
contributions to the computing field. These awards recognize dedicated
professionals whose efforts have vastly improved processor efficiency,
expanded opportunities for women, and provided significantly greater
access to computing research.
The recipients are:
Susan Eggers, the 2009-2010 Athena Lecturer Award,
for her work on computer architecture and experimental performance
analysis has led to the development of Simultaneous Multithreading
(SMT), the first commercially viable multithreaded architecture.
Telle Whitney, the Distinguished Service Award,
for her profound impact on the participation of women in computing.
Whitney, President and CEO of the Anita Borg Institute for Women and
Technology (ABI), co-founded the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in
Computing, which has grown into a major annual event.
Wayne Graves and Bernard Rous, the Outstanding Contribution Award, for their pivotal roles in making the ACM Digital Library and its associated Guide to Computing Literature among the most complete and reliable sources of computing research in the world.
