India - 2010
In honor of his devoted commitment to establishing an ACM presence in India. As a dedicated and active ACM member, Dr. Joseph has long believed that ACM should play a key role in forging links between the best in computer science worldwide. Over the years his influence proved an important factor in the development of strategies that lead to the creation of the ACM Regional Councils. He was instrumental in the formation of the ACM India Council, which was launched in Bangalore in January 2010. The Council, of which he is a member, serves as an example of best practice as the ACM moves forward with its international strategy. Dr. Joseph also serves ACM as a valued member-at-large on ACM Council, a post he was elected to in 2008.
