FME Fellowship Award
FME is currently accepting nominations from FME members for the 2024 fellowship, which will be presented during FM 2024 (9th-13th September 2024). The nominations should be sent to email@example.com by 5th JANUARY 2024.
Established in 2015 and normally given every three years for technical achievements in advancing, applying, and promoting formal methods, the Formal Methods Europe (FME) Fellowship rewards scientific breakthroughs and pioneering work that have made a difference to the world through advances in formal methods.
Nominees are expected to have made significant contributions through solid theoretical work or practical impact in industry. The development of frameworks and tools, teaching formal methods, as well as publicising formal methods worldwide and attracting people to the community are additional criteria that can strengthen a nomination. All nominations have to be supported by concrete evidence.
The FME Awards Committee (named below) will take nominations from FME members and make a recommendation to the FME Board. The chosen nominee (who need not be a member of FME) is invited to attend the FME symposium, when he or she will be presented with the award, including a certificate and a medal, and be invited to present an account of their work.
The first four FME fellows were Cliff Jones, Manfred Broy, and José Meseguer and Dines Bjørner; these FME fellows have made important contributions to formal methods with a strong emphasis on successful industrial applications.
- 2015 Fellowship Award to Cliff Jones
- 2018 Fellowship Award to Manfred Broy
- 2019 Fellowship Award to José Meseguer
- 2021 Fellowship Award to Dines Bjørner
The fourth Award will be made during 2024 and we are currently accepting nominations from members.
