ACM Dissertation Awards
The ACM presents the ACM Dissertation Award annually to the author(s) of the best doctoral dissertation(s) in computer science and engineering. The amount of the award is $1,000. Financial support and the publication of the winning dissertation(s) are provided by Springer-Verlag.
Only one nomination may be submitted from an institution (two if the institution awards more than 10 Computer Engineering or Computer Science PhDs each year). Nominations must be submitted by the chair/head of the nominating department. Nominations for ACM Awards should be submitted by August 1 (unless otherwise specified) to the respective subcommittee chair listed above or to the Office of Policy and Administration, ACM Headquarters, 1515 Broadway, New York, New York 10036, USA.
As a general rule, each nomination submitted should consist of at least the following items:
- Name, address, and phone number of person making the nomination.
- Name and address of candidate for whom an award is recommended.
- A statement (between 200 and 500 words long) as to why the candidate deserves the particular award. It would be helpful to include the candidate's CV.
- The name(s) and address(es) or telephone number(s) of others who agree with the recommendation and supporting letters from such persons are useful.
