2012 SIGMOD Contributions Award
Dr. Marianne Winslett is the recipient of the 2012 SIGMOD Contribution Award for strengthening and humanizing the database community by originating and developing the ‘Distinguished Profile in Database Research’ series.
Details: Marianne’s efforts to interview a large number of senior members as well as emerging stars of our community have been nothing short of heroic. These interviews bring home to us the story of their lives including the key decision points along the way, their reflections on the state of our community, and advice to the next generation of researchers. The transcripts and video tapes of these interviews will prove to be a treasure trove of insights for many future generations of young database researchers.
