SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes Award
The award of $2,500 is given annually for an outstanding contribution to computer architecture made by an individual whose computer-related professional career (graduate school or full-time employment, whichever began first) started no earlier than January 1st of the year that is 20 years prior to the time of nomination. The award is presented annually at the International Symposium on Computer Architecture Awards Banquet.
SIGARCH Eckert Mauchly Award
Administered jointly by ACM and IEEE Computer Society and presented at the ISCA conference. The award of $5000 is given for contributions to computer and digital systems architecture where the field of computer architecture is considered at present to encompass the combined hardware-software design and analysis of computing and digital systems.
SIGARCH ISCA Influential Paper Award
The ACM SIGARCH and IEEE-CS TCCA ISCA Influential Paper Award will be presented annually at the International Symposium on Computer Architecture. This award recognizes the paper from the ISCA Proceedings 15 years earlier that has had the most impact on the field (in terms of research, development, products or ideas) during the intervening years. The award includes an honorarium of $1,000 for the author(s) and a certificate.
SIGARCH Alan D. Berenbaum Distinguished Service Award
This annual award is presented to an individual who has contributed important service to the computer architecture community.The award includes an engraved memento and a $1000 honorarium.
SIGARCH/SIGPLAN/SIGOPS ASPLOS Influential Paper Award
Presented annually to the author(s) of one paper that appeared in the International Symposium on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS) 10 or more ASPLOS conferences prior to the award year. The Award will be presented at ASPLOS each year and includes an honorarium of $1000 and a plaque.
ACM SIGKDD announced seven recipients for its inaugural KDD Impact Program, which aims to fund projects that have the potential for maximum impact on society. The proposals covered training data scientists; a hackathon; use of algorithms by government; women data science leaders; a summer school for high school students; data science for social good; and promoting community understanding of Big Data.
With the theme "Generation New," SIGGRAPH will be a five-day immersion into the latest innovations in computer graphics, animation, virtual reality, games, digital art, mixed reality and emerging technologies. A Doctoral Consortium is being added this year. Rob Bredow, Senior Vice President, Executive Creative Director, and Head of Industrial Light & Magic, will keynote.
