                  *** DAHL-NYGAARD PRIZE ***

The AITO Dahl-Nygaard Committee hereby requests nominations for the Dahl-Nygaard Prize which is awarded annually to individuals that have made significant technical contributions to the field of Object-Orientation.  The prize is named after Ole-Johan Dahl and Kristen Nygaard whose pioneering conceptual and technical work in the sixties shaped that view of programming and modeling which is now known as object-orientation.  The prize will be presented at the ECOOP conference in 2012.  

The prize consists of two awards given to a junior researcher (at most 7 years after obtaining the PhD degree) and a senior researcher.  The senior researcher should have made a significant long-term contribution to the field in research or engineering.  The junior researcher should have made a promising contribution to the field through a paper, a thesis, or a prototype implementation.  

          *** The deadline for nominations is September 30th, 2011 ***

Please send your nominations by email to dahl-nygaard at aito.org along with a short motivation, using the subject 'Dahl-Nygaard junior nomination' or 'Dahl-Nygaard senior nomination'.

PS: Did you supervise a brilliant PhD student a few years ago?  Then consider a DN junior prize nomination!
