Deadline for Mills Award Submissions is 15 December

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 10 November, 2009 – The deadline to submit nominations for the Harlan D. Mills Award, one of the highest honors in software engineering, is approaching on 15 December.

The award, which is accompanied by a memento and a $3,000 honorarium, recognizes researchers and practitioners who have demonstrated longstanding, sustained, and meaningful contributions to the theory and practice of the information sciences, focusing on contributions to the practice of software engineering through the application of sound theory.

Achievements should demonstrate a sustained body of work in software engineering theory and practice. Recipients may also be invited to present a talk at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), cosponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Council on Software Engineering.

The Harlan D. Mills Award Selection Committee is chaired by Dieter Rombach, professor at the University of Kaiserslautern and executive director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE), Kaiserslautern, Germany. A list of past recipients can be found at

The IEEE Computer Society awards program honors outstanding technical achievements, innovation, and service to the computer profession and to the society. Award and nomination information is available at
