We are seeking nominations for the Dahl Nygaard prize, awarded annually by AITO to individuals who have made significant technical contributions to the field of Object-Orientation. The work should be in the spirit of the pioneering conceptual and/or implementation work of Dahl and Nygaard, which shaped our present view of programming and modeling, now known as Object-Orientation.

There are two awards: a Senior Prize, and a Junior Prize given to somebody within 7 years of award of their PhD. The winners are usually asked to give a talk on this occasion, and in addition, the Junior Winner will receive 2.000 Euros for future research expenses.

Nomination is easy: Just fill in the form at
giving your name, the name of the nominee, a paragraph on the nominee’s contributions, and the names and email addresses of three individuals (possibly including your own name) who would be willing to write a letter in support of the nomination.

The deadline for nominations is 1st September 2018. The Nominations cttee will then collect the relevant letters of support, deliberate, and make a recommendation to AITO. By 15th December 2018 AITO  will announce their decision.
