UT ECE professor Dewayne Perry has been named as a recipient of a 2011 SIGSOFT Retrospective Impact Paper Award for his 1992 paper Foundations for the study of software architecture in recognition of the deep impact it has had on software engineering research.
The ACM SIGSOFT Restrospective Impact Paper Award is presented to papers published prior to 1998, the first eligible N-10 year (since SIGSOFT was founded in 1975, 23 years prior to 1998). Retrospective Awards will be made in the form of an award plaque for each author and a public citation of the award.
The ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering provides a forum for computing professionals from industry, government and academia to examine principles, practices, and new research results in software engineering.
Dr. Dewayne Perry is a Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, and holds the Motorola Regents Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
