UW CSE was well represented at the annual ACM Awards Banquet, held this year at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco on the evening of Saturday June 26th.

UW CSE professor Ed Lazowska received the ACM Distinguished Service Award “for more than two decades of wide-ranging and tireless service to the computing community, especially in advocacy at the national level.”

UW CSE professor Gaetano Borriello and UW CSE Ph.D. alumni Jeff Dean (now a Google Fellow) and Chandu Thekkath (now a Director and Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research Silicon Valley) were inducted as ACM Fellows, a distinction awarded to roughly 1% of ACM’s members.

UW CSE Ph.D. alumnus Noah Snavely (now on the computer science faculty at Cornell University) was recognized with an Honorable Mention in the ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award competition.

UW CSE bachelors alumni John Davis (now a Researcher at Microsoft Research Silicon Valley) and Thomas Kwan (now Director of Research Operations at Yahoo! Research) also were in attendance.
