ACM has named 56 members as ACM Fellows for significant contributions in areas including computer architecture, mobile networks, robotics, and systems security.

The accomplishments of the 2018 ACM Fellows underpin the technologies that define the digital age and greatly impact our professional and personal lives.

ACM Fellows comprise an elite group that represents less than one per cent of the Association’s global membership. The 2018 Fellows were cited for numerous contributions in areas including accessibility, augmented reality, algorithmic game theory, data mining, storage, software and the World Wide Web.

“The ACM Fellows program publicly recognizes the people who made key contributions to the technologies we enjoy. Even when their work did not directly result in a specific technology, they have made major theoretical contributions that have advanced the science of computing. We are honored to add a new class of Fellows to ACM’s ranks and we look forward to the guidance and counsel they will provide to our organization.”

Underscoring ACM’s global reach, the 2018 Fellows hail from universities, companies and research centers in Australia, Finland, Greece, Israel, Sweden, Switzerland, and the US.

ACM will formally recognize its 2018 Fellows at the annual Awards Banquet, to be held in San Francisco on June 15, 2019. Additional information about the 2018 ACM Fellows, and the awards event, as well as previous ACM Fellows, is available through the ACM Fellows site.
