Sandholm Named ACM Fellow
The Association for Computing Machinery has recognized Tuomas Sandholm, professor of computer science, as one of 44 new ACM Fellows. Sandholm, director of the Agent-Mediated Electronic Marketplaces Laboratory, was cited for his contributions to combinatorial auctions and mechanism design.
Other newly named ACM Fellows from Carnegie Mellon are Watts S. Humphrey of the Software Engineering Institute for contributions to the software engineering process discipline and Rob A. Rutenbar, professor of electrical and computer engineering, for his work on computer-aided design tools for mixed-signal integrated circuits.
“These men and women are the inventors of technology that impact the way people live and work throughout the world,” ACM President Dame Wendy Hall said of the 44 Fellows. “Their selection as 2008 ACM Fellows offers us an opportunity to recognize their dedicated leadership in this dynamic field, and to honor their contributions to solving complex problems, expanding the impact of technology, and advancing the quality of life for people everywhere.”
