December 16, 2021 - 12:06pm

Prof. Xiaoming Fu, Professor of Computer Science and Head of Computer Networks Group at the University of Göttingen, was named a Distinguished Member of the Association for Computing Machinery. ACM named 63 Distinguished Members in 2021 for outstanding scientific contributions to the computing field. All inductees are longstanding ACM members and were selected by their peers for a range of accomplishments that advance computing as a science and a profession.

Prof. Fu thanks his family members, former and current students, including postdoctoral and PhD researchers, and his numerous University colleagues, especially those within the computer science institute at the University of Göttingen’s Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, for their support and encouragement.

The 63 distinguished group of computing professionals were selected for their contributions in one of three fields: education, engineering or science. Prof. Fu was selected for his scientific contributions.

Prof. Fu‘s research covers the broad areas of networked systems, applications and services. He is the recipient of several awards and honors including IEEE Fellow (Class of 2022), Member of Academia Europaea (2018), IET Fellow (2017), several conference best paper awards and University of Göttingen Foundation Council’s Prize for Exceptional Publications by Young Scientists (2005).

“Each year we are excited to recognize a new class of ACM Distinguished Members both for their professional achievements, as well as their longstanding membership with ACM,” said ACM President Gabriele Kotsis. “The Distinguished Members program is both a way to celebrate the trailblazing work of our members and to underscore how participation with a professional society enhances one’s career growth. This award category also emphasizes how ACM’s worldwide membership is the foundation of our organization.”

The 63 Distinguished Members work at leading universities, corporations and research institutions across the globe. To be nominated, a candidate must have at least 15 years of professional experience in the computing field, five years of professional ACM membership in the last 10 years and have made a significant impact in the field of computing, computer science or information technology. In addition, it is expected that a Distinguished Member serve as a mentor and role model, guiding technical career development and contributing to the field beyond the norm.
