ACM Policy Award

Recognizes Contributions in this Critical Arena

The ACM Policy Award was established in 2014 to recognize an individual or small group that had a significant positive impact on the formation or execution of public policy affecting computing or the computing community. This can be for education, service, or leadership in a technology position; for establishing an innovative program in policy education or advice; for building the community or community resources in technology policy; or other notable policy activity.

The 2015 ACM Policy Award recipient will be the first and will receive the award in June 2016.  The award is accompanied by a $10,000 prize and will be presented in even-numbered years at the ACM Awards Banquet.
