Gail Murphy, David Notkin, and Kevin Sullivan win ACM SIGSOFT 2011 Retrospective Impact Paper Award

ACM’s Special Interest Group on Software Engineering – SIGSOFT – launched an initiative several years ago to recognize research papers that have been particularly influential in software engineering research.  Annually an award is made to a paper published a decade earlier, and in each of the first five years of the award, an additional committee is asked to select up to five papers published prior to 1998 for a special Retrospective Impact Award.

The 1995 paper “Software Reflexion Models:  Bridging the Gap between Source and High-Level Models” has been selected to receive a 2011 SIGSOFT Retrospective Impact Paper awards.  The paper was part of the UW CSE Ph.D. research of Gail Murphy, now a faculty member at the University of British Columbia.  Her co-authors were her Ph.D. advisor David Notkin, and Kevin Sullivan, another Notkin Ph.D. who had recently joined the faculty at the University of Virginia.

Congratulations to Gail, David, and Kevin!
