New Officers Emphasize Role of Computing to Address Societal Challenges

New York, NY, May 28, 2020
 – ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, has announced the election of new officers who will lead the organization for a two-year term beginning July 1. Heading the new team will be incoming President Gabriele Kotsis. Kotsis is Professor and Head of the Department of Telecooperation at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. Joining Kotsis as Vice President will be Joan Feigenbaum, Grace Murray Hopper Professor of Computer Science at Yale University; and, as Secretary/Treasurer, Elisa Bertino, Samuel Conte Professor of Computer Science at Purdue University.  

In addition, Members-at-Large elected to four-year terms are Nancy M. Amato, Abel Bliss Professor and Department Head of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Tom Crick, Professor of Digital Education & Policy, Swansea University, Swansea, UK; Susan Dumais, Technical Fellow and Director, Microsoft Research Labs, New England; Mehran Sahami, Professor (Teaching) and Associate Chair for Education, Stanford University; and Alejandro Saucedo, Engineering Director (Machine Learning), Seldon Technologies and Chief Scientist, The Institute for Ethical AI & Machine Learning, London, UK.


President-elect Kotsis said her key priorities include using ACM’s global reach and the expertise of its membership to address pressing problems in society. “No other discipline or technology will have more impact on shaping our future than computer science and technology,” said Kotsis. “Global problems must be addressed in a global way, independently from a particular individual, national or commercial interest. Computing can play a role in fighting the CO2 dilemma, fertilizing medical research and healthcare, and protecting our democracy.” Kotsis also emphasized that ACM must continue to be a leading voice for fostering ethics in the field. “Our community must lead, not only from a scientific and technical perspective in being able to provide correct solutions, but also from an ethical and societal point of view,” she added.


Kotsis is a founding member of the ACM Europe Council, serving from 2008 to 2016. She has organized ACM conferences and workshops, and in 2016 received an award in appreciation of her accomplishments regarding the ACM womENcourage conference series. In 2014, she became an ACM Distinguished Member for her contributions to workload characterization for parallel and distributed systems, and for founding ACM Europe. Since 2016, she has been an elected Member-at-Large of the ACM Council.

Joan Feigenbaum, incoming ACM Vice President, echoed Kotsis’s vision for ACM to play an active role in utilizing computing to foster a better future. “ACM members can address myriad threats now facing society,” said Feigenbaum. “These threats combine sophisticated computation in critical ways with politics (as in ‘election hacking’), economics (as in technology-induced unemployment), journalism (as in ‘fake news’), law (as in mass surveillance in the name of national security), international relations (as in ‘cyberwar’), finance (as in bitcoin speculation), and many other fields. In tackling them, computer scientists will work collaboratively with people in social sciences, law, and many disciplines besides the STEM fields with which we have collaborated for decades.”


A member of ACM since graduate school, Feigenbaum has served in many roles, including SIGACT Executive Committee member from 2005 to 2009 and SIGEcom Vice Chair from 2005 to 2011. During her tenure with SIGEcom, she played a leading role in establishing ACM Transactions on Economics and Computation (TEAC). Most recently, she led the creation of the ACM Symposium on Computer Science and Law and served as General Chair for the inaugural symposium in 2019.


Newly-elected ACM Secretary/Treasurer Elisa Bertino, an ACM member for 38 years, would like ACM to be a leading voice in areas including AI and data ethics, data transparency, and sustainability. “I will also focus on important matters, such as broadening diversity in our field, supporting younger researchers and open access to data and publications,” said Bertino. “Last, but not least, I would like to make sure that ACM stays technically relevant by organizing workshops and conferences on new emerging technologies and applications.”


Bertino served as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing and    coordinating Co-Editor-in-Chief of Very Large Database Systems (VLDB). She chaired ACM’s Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC) from 2009 to 2013.  In 2011, she co-founded ACM’s Conference on Data and Application Security and Privacy (CODASPY), now considered the main forum for high-quality research on data privacy and security. She is the recipient of the 2019-2020 ACM Athena Lecturer Award.

Computing Visionaries Made Contributions in Areas Including

Internet, Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence


New York, NY, May 20, 2020 – ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, today announced the recipients of three prestigious technical awards. These leaders were selected by their peers for making contributions to some of the most impactful and fastest-growing fields in technology.


Paul Mockapetris, Chief Scientist at ThreatSTOP, receives the ACM Software System Award for development of the Domain Name System (DNS), which provides the worldwide distributed directory service that is an essential component of the functionality of the global internet.


When the internet was first deployed in the early 1980s, the online community relied on a centrally- managed directory that matched human-friendly host names to numerical IP addresses of computers on the network. As the internet began to grow more rapidly, maintaining a single centralized host directory became slow and unwieldy, necessitating a new scalable architecture. To address this need, in 1983, Mockapetris designed and built the Domain Name System (DNS), creating the associated query protocol, a server implementation, and initial root servers. Taken together, these components provided the first stable operational DNS system.


When Mockapetris initially designed the DNS, the number of name lookups to establish the associated IP address were in the few thousands per day. Today, while still employing the core components that Mockapetris introduced 37 years ago, the DNS manages 350 million separately-managed domains, and responds to several tens of billions of queries each day.


DNS serves as a foundation for dozens of other applications, including email and web addresses. The Universal Resource Locator (URL) and Universal Resource Identifier (URI)—core components the World Wide Web—rely on domain names as introduced in the DNS system. While many of the new features of the DNS have been added by others, the ability of Mockapetris’s original design to incorporate these updates is a testament to his work.


The ACM Software System Award is presented to an institution or individual(s) recognized for developing a software system that has had a lasting influence, reflected in contributions to concepts, in commercial acceptance, or both. The Software System Award carries a prize of $35,000. Financial support for the Software System Award is provided by IBM.


Noga Alon, Princeton University and Tel Aviv University; Phillip Gibbons, Carnegie Mellon University; Yossi Matias, Google and Tel Aviv University; and Mario Szegedy, Rutgers University, receive the ACM Paris Kanellakis Theory and Practice Award for seminal work on the foundations of streaming algorithms and their application to large-scale data analytics.

Alon, Gibbons, Matias and Szegedy pioneered a framework for algorithmic treatment of streaming massive datasets. Today, their sketching and streaming algorithms remain the core approach for streaming big data and constitute an entire subarea of the field of algorithms. Additionally, the concepts of sketches and synopses that they introduced are now routinely used in a variety of data analysis tasks in databases, network monitoring, usage analytics in internet products, natural language processing and machine learning.

In their seminal paper, “The Space Complexity of Approximating the Frequency Moments,” Alon, Matias and Szegedy laid the foundations of the analysis of data streams using limited memory. Follow-up papers, including “Tracking Join and Self-join Sizes in Limited Storage,” by Alon, Gibbons, Matias, and Szegedy, and “New Sampling-Based Summary Statistics for Improving Approximate Query Answers,” by Gibbons and Matias, expanded on the idea of data synopses and were instrumental in the development of the burgeoning fields of streaming and sketching algorithms. This work has been applied to query planning and processing in databases and the design of small synopses to monitor vast quantities of data generated in networks. 


The ACM Paris Kanellakis Theory and Practice Award honors specific theoretical accomplishments that have had a significant and demonstrable effect on the practice of computing. This award is accompanied by a prize of $10,000 and is endowed by contributions from the Kanellakis family, with additional financial support provided by ACM's Special Interest Groups on Algorithms and Computation Theory (SIGACT), Design Automation (SIGDA), Management of Data (SIGMOD), and Programming Languages (SIGPLAN), the ACM SIG Projects Fund, and individual contributions.


Lydia E. Kavraki, Rice University, and Daphne Koller, Stanford University and Insitro, receive the ACM-AAAI Allen Newell Award. 


Lydia Kavraki is recognized for pioneering contributions to robotic motion planning, including the invention of randomized motion planning algorithms and probabilistic roadmaps, with applications to bioinformatics and biomedicine.


Kavraki conducted foundational work on physical algorithms and developed efficient high-dimensional search frameworks that impacted robotics (motion planning, hybrid systems, formal methods in robotics, assembly planning, and micro- and flexible manipulation), as well as computational structural biology, translational bioinformatics, and biomedical informatics. 


Kavraki has authored more than 240 peer-reviewed publications and is a co-author of the widely used robotics textbook, Principles of Robot Motion. Her seminal paper, “Probabilistic Roadmaps for Path Planning in High Dimensional Configuration Spaces,” (with Svestka, Latombe and Overmars) was the first to establish a probabilistic approach to developing roadmaps for high-dimensional spaces, which has become one of the key techniques for motion planning for complex physical systems. 


Kavraki’s contributions go beyond robotics to address problems underlying the functional annotation of proteins, the understanding of metabolic networks, and the investigation of molecular conformations and protein flexibility. She has contributed to problems that involve reasoning about the three-dimensional structure of biomolecules and their ability to interact with other biomolecules primarily for drug design and, more recently, for personalized cancer immunotherapy.


Daphne Koller is recognized for seminal contributions to machine learning and probabilistic models, the application of these techniques to biology and human health, and for contributions to democratizing education.


Koller was a leader in the development and use of graphical models, including learning the model structure as well as its parameters, and pioneered the unification of statistical learning and relational modelling languages. She also developed foundational methods for inference and learning in temporal models.  Her textbook (with Nir Friedman), Probabilistic Graphical Models, is the definitive text in this area. 


As an early leader in bringing machine learning methods to the life sciences, she developed Module Networks, wherein she and her colleagues harnessed modularity in gene regulatory programs to build an effective model of gene activity.  She has developed groundbreaking applications of machine learning to pathology, work that not only demonstrated the ability of machine learning to outperform human pathologists, but also was one of the first to highlight the importance of the stromal tissue in cancer prognosis (now well-recognized). 


Koller is also the co-founder and former co-CEO of Coursera, a platform offering free education from top universities to people worldwide. Coursera, now in its eighth year, has touched the lives of over 50 million learners in every country in the world. Koller is currently the founder and CEO of Insitro, a biotech startup that works to discover better medicines through the integration of machine learning and biology at scale.


The ACM - AAAI Allen Newell Award is presented to an individual selected for career contributions that have breadth within computer science, or that bridge computer science and other disciplines. The Newell award is accompanied by a prize of $10,000, provided by ACM and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), and by individual contributions.

One potential approach to achieving a functional HIV cure is to first reduce the size of the HIV reservoir and then engineer an immune response that can effectively control the shrunken reservoir in the absence of antiretroviral therapy. MicAbodies, comprised of full-length broadly neutralizing HIV antibodies coupled to a mutated ligand, selectively engage a mutant receptor that has been engineered as a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) and expressed on CD8 T cells (convertibleCAR-T cells). The HIV-specific MicAbodies and the convertibleCAR-T cells can detect and eliminate HIV infected cells. The modularity of the convertibleCAR-T cell system allows multiplexing with several anti-HIV antibodies and yields greater breadth and control, thus making this platform a promising tool for attacking the latent HIV reservoir.

Creative Biolabs invites Dr. Eytan Herzig, a Staff Research Scientist at the University of California, San Francisco, to share his profound insights on the principles and opportunities of innovative convertibleCAR-T platform in HIV cure.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The potential approach to achieve a functional HIV cure
  • How does convertibleCAR-T detect and eliminate HIV infected cells?
  • The performance of the convertibleCAR-T cells ex vivo and in vivo
  • ConvertibleCAR-T cells advantages over conventional CAR-T cells
