2000 Juris Hartmanis Awardee Walter R. Read Professor of Engineering at Cornell University

From 1990 to 1992, Dr. Hartmanis chaired the Study of the Scope and Direction of Computer Science for the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board of the National Research Council. This study resulted in the influential volume Computing the Future: A Broader Agenda for Computer Science and Engineering, which had a major impact on the computing research community’s ability to look outward.

Juris Hartmanis recently completed a two-year term as the Assistant Director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). During his tenure, he effectively positioned NSF and CISE to assume a leadership role in response to the President’s Information Technology Advisory Committee (PITAC) report. He was instrumental in shaping the discussion that led to NSF’s playing the lead role in the Information Technology Research (ITR) program.

Dr. Hartmanis received his award at CRA’s Snowbird Conference 2000 on July 10, 2000.
