According to the web site, “The ACM SIGSOFT Impact Paper Award is presented annually to the author(s) of a paper presented at a SIGSOFT sponsored or co-sponsored conference held at least 10 years prior to the award year. In including all of SIGSOFT's conferences in the competition, this award recognizes the breadth and vitality of the software engineering community. The papers are judged by their influence since their publication. The award includes a $1000 honorarium to be split amongst the authors as they choose, an award plaque for each author, an invitation for the authors to present a keynote talk at the current year's annual SIGSOFT Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE) symposium, as well as inclusion of a full-length paper in the SIGSOFT conference proceedings.”
