Miller, Raymond 2002 For strengthening and nurturing computer science as a profession and as a discipline. Throughout his career, departments, journal boards, technical committees, accreditation processes, curriculum revision initiatives, conferences, workshops, and numerous other professional activities have benefited from his judgment, leadership and energy. Ray Miller has made a career of service to computer science, its institutions and professional associations, the contribution of which is only partially revealed by his becoming a Fellow of the ACM, IEEE and AAAS. He has energetically supported and nurtured the discipline, assisting in the development of an extensive variety of professional and educational bodies while, at the same time, contributing intellectually in areas such as parallel computation, switching theory and fault management. Professor Miller spent 14 years on the ACM Publications Board bringing high standards and leadership to its mission. He edited the Journal of the ACM, and ACM Transactions on Networking, helping to raise the visibility and status of both publications. He was a founder of the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CSAB), serving as its initial Vice President and second President, helping, through his statesmanship, to make it a model of inter-society cooperation. Professor Miller participated in the founding and coordination of the Computer Science Board, helping to transform it from an oversight committee for computer science conferences, to an influential representative group that works energetically and effectively to advance computer science research, that is, to the present Computing Research Association (CRA). Given the length of his beneficial career, the breadth of his intellectual and organizational service, and a span of contributions that includes theory and research, science and engineering, and academe and industry, selecting Ray Miller for this ACM Distinguished Service Award is not only judicious, but is also consistent with the highest standards of the Award. His selection is thus doubly appropriate, since high standards have provided the focus and theme of Ray Miller's career. ACM DL Author Profile
