May 2002

Lori Clarke (PhD 1976) is the recipient of the 2002 ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Service Award. The presentation was made at the 24th International Conference on Software Engineering in Orlando, Florida.

Some of the activities she was recognized for include:

  • Lori has been one of the major contributors to ACM SIGSOFT, serving on the executive committee from 1985 to 2001 as secretary/treasurer, vice-chair, chair, and past chair. Numerous programs and policies were set during Lori's tenure on the SIGSOFT leadership team, including (to pick just one) the CAPS program for supporting student travel to SIGSOFT-sponsored conferences.

  • Lori has served as an associate editor of ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems and as an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering. She now serves on the IEEE Publications Board.

  • Lori has served as a member of the advisory board for the Computer-Communications Research (CCR) division of the National Science Foundation. She was recently reelected to the Board of Directors of the influential Computing Research Association (an association of academic departments, laboratories, and centers in industry, government, and academia engaging in basic computing research).

  • In additional to serving on numerous program committees, Lori was program co-chair of the 14th International Conference on Software Engineering, and is general chair of the 25th International Conference on Software Engineering to be held in 2003.

In addition to her distinguished service to ACM SIGSOFT, her technical achievements have earned her the prestigious ACM Fellow award.
