Association for Computing Machinery and Google Inc.
The A. M. Turing Award is ACM's oldest and most prestigious award. It is presented annually to an individual who has made lasting contributions of a technical nature to the computing community. The award is presented each June at the ACM Awards Banquet and is accompanied by a prize of $1,000,000 plus travel expenses to the banquet. Financial support for the award is provided by Google Inc.
Although the long-term influences of the nominee's work are taken into consideration, there should be a particular outstanding and trend-setting technical achievement that constitutes the principal claim to the award. Successful Turing Award nominations include substantive letters of support from prominent individuals who are broadly representative of the candidate's field or related fields, and that provide clear evidence of the candidate’s lasting impact.
Members of an ACM award committee are not eligible for that award during their term of committee service.
The most appropriate person to submit a nomination would be a recognized member of the community who is not from the same organization as the candidate and who can address the candidate’s impact on the broader community.
The award is presented each June at the ACM Awards Banquet and is accompanied by a prize of $1,000,000 plus travel expenses to the banquet.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
