2018 A.M. Turing Award

Sponsor

Description

This prestigious $1,000,000 prize is awarded to an individual selected for technical contributions to the computing community. The contributions should be of lasting and major technical importance to the computer field.

Although the long-term influences of the nominee’s work are taken into consideration, there should be a particular outstanding and trend-setting technical achievement that constitutes the principal claim to the award.  Successful Turing Award nominations include substantive letters of support from prominent individuals who are broadly representative of the candidate’s field or related fields, and that provide clear evidence of the candidate’s lasting impact.

To discuss a possible nomination, please approach the awards director or coordinator for your division, or request guidance from the contact below.
