The Goode Award is given to individuals for their achievements in the information processing field which are considered either a single contribution of theory, design, or technique of outstanding significance, or the accumulation of important contributions on theory or practice over an extended time period. The award consists of a bronze medal and a $2,000 honorarium.
The Computer Society plans to present Yale’s award at a dinner and ceremony to be held on Wednesday evening, 12 June 2013 in Seattle, Washington.
