Dear colleagues,

The AITO Dahl-Nygaard Prize Committee hereby requests nominations for the
Dahl-Nygaard Prizes, which are awarded annually to individuals that have made
significant technical contributions to the field of Object-Orientation.
The deadline for nominations is September 30th, 2016.

The prizes are 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 prizes will be
presented at the ECOOP conference in 2017, in Barcelona, Spain.

One prize is awarded to a junior researcher (who has obtained the PhD
degree at most 7 years before the award year, i.e., in 2010 or later),
and one prize to 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

The list of previous winners is on the AITO website:
http://www.aito.org/Dahl-Nygaard/ .
The prize statutes are at
http://www.aito.org/Dahl-Nygaard/statutes.html .

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'.  You can even nominate more that one
person for each prize.

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