About Outstanding Contribution to ACM Award
This award may be given to up to three individuals per year, for entirely different activities, and they are selected based on the value and degree of service to ACM.
Chris Hankin was named recipient of the Outstanding Contribution to ACM Award for fundamental contributions to ACM Europe and for bringing a European perspective to critically important ACM committees and activities. As Chair of the ACM Europe Council from 2017 to 2019, Hankin made it a priority to strengthen the visibility of ACM among younger generations in Europe. As a member of its policy committee, he co-authored two white papers: one on cybersecurity and one on automated decision making.
