ACM announces 2009 Fellows

New ACM fellows include four SIGCOMM members: current SIGCOMM chair Bruce Davie, Jeffrey Dean, Farnam Jahanian, and John Chi-Shing Lui.

The ACM Fellows Program was established by Council in 1993 to recognize and honor outstanding ACM members for their achievements in computer science and information technology and for their significant contributions to the mission of the ACM. The ACM Fellows serve as distinguished colleagues to whom the ACM and its members look for guidance and leadership as the world of information technology evolves.

New ACM fellows include four SIGCOMM members:

  • Bruce Davie (Cisco) "For contributions to computer networking",
  • Jeffrey A. Dean (Google) "For contributions to the science and engineering of large-scale distributed computer systems",
  • Farnam Jahanian (Univ. Michigan) "For contributions to the dependability and security of networks and systems.", and
  • John Chi-Shing Lui (CUHK) "For contributions to stochastic analysis of parallel storage and communication systems."
