Additional information about the 2020 ACM Fellows, as well as previously named ACM Fellows, is available through the ACM Fellows site .

The contributions of the 2020 Fellows run the gamut of the computing field―including algorithms, networks, computer architecture, robotics, distributed systems, software development, wireless systems, and web science–to name a few.

In addition to their research contributions, the ACM Fellow will participate in an institutional-wide fellowship hall. A full list of the published work of past ACM Software Voting Fellows is located in the ACM NEWS publication Knowledge and the Kernel.

High-Priority Funding in Software Research For exact information about research funding by ACM follow this link to the latest Report, ACM Software Research: Prizes for the year ending August 31, 2019. Previous years download materials and information about that year's competition.

In addition to the Annual Fellowship, ACM Software Grants are offered to eligible researchers for timely, high-impact research experiences, which must lead to publications. Almost 3,000 researchers have submitted awards during each term of every five year ACM Software Grant (used by more than 30,000 faculty and students). Some Fellows received $75,000, more than any other Fellowship. Read more

Teaching software for software developers is a losing game For years, Teaching Software For Software Developers (TSDF) called for students to apply teaching principles from computer science to software development. Unfortunately, our victories over the years have primarily been in the hard sciences and lots of money (i.e., funding) never seems to follow.

More than 300 academics, policy analysts, and nonprofits downloaded the Expert's Guide to Teaching Software Development for free from ACM Press. Read about eight new books then on sale as download in bioinformatics and computer-science circles. Read press accounts of researchers participating in lectures and workshops listed on our Media Resources page.

ACM's Maria Giusti-Varga, Ulf Poettering, and Malin Seibert have co-created the FREE KITT – a set of tools for creating (hip) new programming languages - and have made it free to download.
