2006 acm fellows

The 2006 ACM Fellows were announced recently, it’s great to see many familiar names on the list; whose research work I’ve read and enjoyed:

  • Surajit Chaudhuri: DBExplorer(BANKS competitor), and a bunch of other DB/IR stuff.
  • Gerhard Weikum: Loads of algo stuff, lurrve his probabilistic Fagin merge paper!
  • Jennifer Widom: Personalized PageRank, Topic-sensitive PageRank, amongst other things.

In case you were wondering, my advisor is an ACM Fellow too :)
