*** DAHL-NYGAARD PRIZE ***
The AITO Dahl-Nygaard Committee hereby requests nominations for the Dahl-Nygaard Prize which is awarded annually to individuals that have made significant technical contributions to the field of Object-Orientation. The prize is named after Ole-Johan Dahl and Kristen Nygaard whose pioneering conceptual and technical work in the sixties shaped that view of programming and modeling which is now known as object-orientation. The prize will be presented at the ECOOP conference in 2012.
The prize consists of two awards given to a junior researcher (at most 7 years after obtaining the PhD degree) and a senior researcher. The senior researcher should have made a significant long-term contribution to the field in research or engineering. The junior researcher should have made a promising contribution to the field through a paper, a thesis, or a prototype implementation.
*** The deadline for nominations is September 30th, 2011 ***
Please send your nominations by email to dahl-nygaard at aito.org along with a short motivation, using the subject 'Dahl-Nygaard junior nomination' or 'Dahl-Nygaard senior nomination'.
PS: Did you supervise a brilliant PhD student a few years ago? Then consider a DN junior prize nomination!
