Prof. Matthias Jarke named ACM Fellow16.12.2013 - (idw) Fraunhofer-Institut für Angewandte Informationstechnik FIT
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) named Prof. Matthias Jarke ACM Fellow, specifically recognizing his contributions to conceptual modeling, requirements engineering and metadata management as well as his leading role in advancing computer science in Germany. In the 20 years of the ACM Fellows program, ten German computer scientists were named ACM Fellow, among them three researchers from Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
Prof. Jarke is the director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT and holds the Information Systems chair (Informatik 5) at RWTH Aachen University. He is the only 2013 ACM Fellow from Germany. In 2012, Prof. Jarke was named Fellow of the German Informatics Society (GI), recognizing his contributions to the fields of Data Bases and Information Systems and his outstanding services as coordinator of the German Year of Informatics events in 2006. For many years, Prof. Jarke served as president and treasurer of GI. He also had a leading role in defining the standards for the official recognition of new computer science courses and interdisciplinary informatics courses at German universities.
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) was founded as early as 1947 and is today the leading international learned society for computer science, with about 80,000 members worldwide. By publishing numerous scientific journals and series of publications, and by organizing international conferences, ACM helps to advance computer science and information technology on a global scale.
Each year, ACM recognizes a number "of its members for their contributions to computing that are driving innovations across multiple domains and disciplines. The fifty 2013 ACM Fellows" hail "from the world's leading universities, corporations, and research labs", among them IBM Research, Boeing, Yahoo!, Google Inc. or Microsoft Research. The majority of the 2013 ACM Fellows are from US universities, e.g. University of California, Cornell University, University of Maryland or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Outside of North America, four faculty members of European universities ETH Zürich, Politecnico di Milano, University College London, and RWTH Aachen University are among the 2013 ACM Fellows.
