SIGCAS Making a Difference Award
This award is presented to an individual whose vision and achievements have significant influence in broadly shaping the interaction of computers and society. The recipient is exemplary in promoting awareness of ethical and social issues involving computing technology and ethical professional practice in the computing field. The recipient of this award and the award itself encourage responsible action by computer professionals. The recipient need not be a SIGCAS member. Some areas of endeavor that advance the social good and, therefore, may be considered for this award are:
Increasing access to the computing professions for diverse populations
Promoting privacy, security, trust, and safety in the computing sphere
Raising the standard of living worldwide through computing technology
SIGCAS Outstanding Service Award
This award is presented to a SIGCAS member who merits recognition for outstanding service in carrying out work that fosters SIGCAS’ well-being, vibrancy, visibility and currency. This service may take many forms, including organizational leadership, editorial board participation or outreach efforts to expand SIGCAS’ influence in the ACM and computing community at large. Nominations will also be considered for individuals who have made noteworthy contributions to the computers and society community at large.
