CRA Elects New Board Members
CRA recently elected five new members to its board of directors. Anne Condon
(University of British Columbia), Richard A. DeMillo (Georgia Institute of
Technology), Peter Lee (Carnegie Mellon University), J Strother Moore
(University of Texas at Austin), and David Notkin (University of Washington)
will serve three-year terms beginning July 1, 2005.
Two current board members, Lori Clarke (University of Massachusetts at
Amherst) and Richard C. Waters (Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories), were
re-elected to three-year terms. Wim Sweldens (Lucent Technologies, Bell Labs)
and Bryant York (Portland State University) were appointed to complete the terms
(ending June 30, 2006) of two members who resigned from the board.
Anne Condon is Professor of Computer Science at the University of British
Columbia. She is the NSERC Chair for Women in Science and Engineering
(2004-09), and received the Distinguished Alumna Award from University
College in Cork, Ireland, in 2001. Professor Condon has been an active
member of CRA-W since 1994, serving as co-chair from 1999-2002, and has been
an effective fundraiser for the Canadian Distributed Mentor Project. She is
a theoretical researcher, contributing to the foundations of the field and
to prediction of molecular structure, bio-molecular computation,
verification, and probabilistic planning. Professor Condon received a Ph.D.
in Computer Science from the University of Washington.
Richard A. DeMillo is Dean and Distinguished Professor of Computing,
College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology. He is an AAAS Fellow
and a widely respected computer scientist. Professor DeMillo served as Chief
Technology Officer at the Hewlett Packard Company and as Head of Information
and Computer Sciences Research at Telcordia Technologies. He also directed
the CISE Computer and Computation Research Division of the National Science
Foundation. Professor DeMillo’s research interests lie in the areas of
information security, nanotechnology, computing and communication
architectures, and software engineering. He received a Ph.D. in Information
and Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Peter Lee is Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.
He has served as Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs in the CS school
where he was involved in initiatives related to women and minorities.
Professor Lee is an ACM Fellow, and has received the Allen Newell Award for
Research Excellence, the Herbert A. Simon Award for Teaching Excellence, and
an NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award. He serves on the Army Science
Board, as well as DARPA’s ISAT Committee and its IXO Senior Advisory Group.
Professor Lee’s research interests include programming language design and
implementation, compiler design, static program analysis, and certified
code, especially proof-carrying code. Professor Lee received a Ph.D. in
Computer and Communications Sciences from the University of Michigan.
J Strother Moore is Chair of the CS Department and holds the Admiral B.R.
Inman Centennial Chair in Computing Theory at the University of Texas at
Austin. He is an AAAI Fellow, and in 1999 was a co-recipient of the Herbrand
Award at the Conference on Automated Deduction. Professor Moore previously
was a founder and chief scientist at Computational Logic, Inc. He is
currently a member of the Academic Alliance of the National Center for Women
and Information Technology. Professor Moore helped found the fields of
mechanized inductive theorem proving and hardware and software verification.
He received a Ph.D. in Computational Logic from the University of Edinburgh.
David Notkin is Bradley Professor and Chair of the Department of Computer
Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. He is an ACM
Fellow, and he has received the R1edu Award for Distinguished Faculty
Contributions to Online Learning, the University of Washington Distinguished
Graduate Mentor Award, and an NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award.
Professor Notkin has been active in ACM, serving as Chair of SIGSOFT, as a
member of the SIG Governing Board, and as Associate Editor of ACM
Transactions on Software Engineering & Methodology. His research interests
lie in software engineering, software evolution, and software testing and
evaluation. Professor Notkin received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from
Carnegie Mellon University.
Wim Sweldens, Vice President, Computing Sciences Research, Lucent
Technologies, Bell Labs, has been appointed to complete the term (ending
June 30, 2006) of Elaine Weyuker, AT&T - Research, who resigned from the
board. He is an IEEE Fellow and the winner of the 2003 SPIE Wavelet Pioneer
Award. MIT’s Technology Review chose him as one of 100 top young innovators
in 1999, and in the same year he won the SIAM Outstanding Paper Award
(across all SIAM journals). Dr. Sweldens’ research interests include
wavelets algorithms and high dimensional multiresolution; computer graphics;
image and video compression; network management and network modeling
languages; and secure networking. Dr. Sweldens received a Ph.D. from the
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.
Bryant York, Professor of Computer Science, Portland State University,
has been appointed to complete the term (ending June 30, 2006) of Jan Cuny,
University of Oregon, who resigned from the board. Professor York has been
awarded the CRA A. Nico Habermann Award, the Tapia Award, and in 2001 was
named one of the Top 50 African Americans in Information Technology. He has
been an active member of the Coalition to Diversify Computing (CDC, a joint
organization of ACM, CRA and IEEE-CS) and the CDC Executive Committee, and
was General Co-Chair of the Tapia Conference in 2003. Professor York’s
research interests lie in the areas of parallel computing, machine learning,
and educational technology. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the
