Wolf Named ACM Fellow


January 2007

Professor Alexander Wolf has been recently named a 2006 ACM Fellow. The ACM Fellows Program was established in 1993 to recognize and honor outstanding ACM members for their achievements in computer science and information technology and for their significant contributions to the mission of the ACM. The ACM Fellows serve as distinguished colleagues to whom the ACM and its members look for guidance and leadership as the world of information technology evolves. Wolf was recognized for "research in distributed system software engineering and service to the community."

The Association for Computing Machinery recognized 41 of its members in 2006 for their contributions to both the practical and theoretical aspects of computing and information technology. The new ACM Fellows, from some of the world's leading industries, universities, and research labs, made significant advances that are having lasting effects on the lives of citizens throughout the world.

"The breadth and depth of the contributions these computing scientists and professionals have made to our world and the way we live are remarkable," said ACM President Stuart Feldman. "Their work reflects outstanding displays of creativity and commitment to the computing community, which continues to drive innovation in industries and enterprises across the globe. These individuals deserve our acclaim for providing dedicated leadership, solving complex problems, and pursuing productive careers in information technology that have advanced the quality of life for people everywhere."

The technology areas for which the recipients were honored span a wide range of disciplines and applications, including computational complexity theory; parallel and distributed computation; programming languages; artificial intelligence and cognitive science; information processing and web analysis; resource management of data networks; mechanized theorem proving; numerical algorithms; user interface technology; system software for parallel and distributed computing; database management systems; protocols for packet switched networks; information management and security; and broadening participation in computing.

ACM will formally recognize the new Fellows at its annual Awards Banquet in San Diego in June 2007.
