Arvind Honored with Harry H. Goode Memorial Award
June 15, 2012
Arvind, the Johnson Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and a principal investigator at CSAIL, has been named the recipient of the IEEE Computer Society’s Harry H. Goode Memorial Award. Arvind was honored for his, “fundamental contributions to research in dataflow computing, memory models, and cache coherence protocols.”
The Goode Award was established to recognize achievement in the information-processing field–either a single contribution of theory, design, or technique of outstanding significance; or the accumulation of important contributions on theory or practice over an extended period.
Arvind received his MS and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota in 1972 and 1973, respectively, and his B. Tech. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, in 1969. Prior to joining MIT, Arvind taught at the University of California, Irvine, from 1974 to 1978, and at IIT Kanpur from 1977 to 1978.
Arvind has contributed to the development of dynamic dataflow architectures, the implicitly parallel programming languages Id and pH, and the compilation of these types of languages on parallel machines. Dr. R. S. Nikhil and Arvind published the book “Implicit Parallel Programming in pH” in 2001. His current research focus is on enabling rapid development of embedded systems.
Arvind is a Fellow of IEEE and ACM, and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.
