It is a great pleasure to announce that Martin Glinz, longstanding professor at the Department of Informatics, won the SIGSOFT Distinguished Service Award 2016 of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
SIGSOFT is the special interest group on all aspects of software development. It was founded in 1976 and its activities attract both academics and practitioners. The Distinguished Service Award is presented to an individual who has contributed an important service to the software engineering community.
