Moore Selected as Division V Director

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 12 October, 2010 – James W. Moore, Vice President of the Professional Activities Board, has been selected as IEEE Division V director.
Moore garnered 3,701 votes in the recent IEEE election compared to 2,599 ballots cast for Board of Governors member Jon G. Rokne, a professor in the University of Calgary’s Computer Science Department, which he chaired from 1989 to 1996.
Winner of the 2009 Hans Karlsson Standards Award, Moore is a 40-year veteran of software engineering at IBM and Mitre Corp., where he is a senior principal engineer. He has served as a member of a US federal advisory board, as chair of the US Technical Advisory Group, and as head of the delegation to the ISO/IEC subcommittee on software and systems engineering.
Moore, CSDP, was an executive editor of the Computer Society’s Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge and a member of the editorial board for the 2002 revision of the Encyclopedia of Software Engineering.
As chair of the Computer Society’s Professional Practices Committee, he led efforts to align the SWEBOK Guide with the model curriculum for software engineering and with the Computer Society’s two certification programs, resulting in a single statement of the content and boundaries of the software engineering discipline.
Moore holds two US patents, and his latest book on software engineering standards was published in 2006. He is an IEEE Fellow and a member of the Computer Society’s Golden Core. He graduated from the University of North Carolina with a BS in mathematics and from Syracuse University with an MS in systems and information science.
