Posted on behalf of Joseph Konstan [[log in to unmask]]

Hello all.  This is the time of the year when we have the opportunity to
recognize the important contributions of members of the CHI community to
the field of Computer Science.  I encourage you to consider colleagues
worthy of the following honors and to nominate those who've made
outstanding contributions in the areas covered.  

Please feel free to contact me if you need ideas for co-nominators (or
letter-of-support authors) from our community.  
 
As we filling the ranks of the CHI Academy, I will also be asking
them--some of the most distinguished contributors to our field--to take
up the challenge of increasing our visibility through nominations for
ACM awards.
 
JK

must be 35 years of age or less at the time the qualifying contribution
was made.

 

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD

Awarded on the basis of value and degree of services to the computing
community.  The contribution should not be limited to service to the
Association, but should include activities in other computer
organizations and should emphasize contributions to the computing
community at large.
