The call for nominations for the 2008 Edsger W. Dijkstra Prize in Distributed Computing is now out. See here. The prize is given for outstanding papers on the principles of distributed computing, whose significance and impact on the theory and/or practice of distributed computing has been evident for at least a decade, and is sponsored jointly by the ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC) and the EATCS Symposium on Distributed Computing (DISC). The award is presented annually, with the presentation taking place alternately at ACM PODC and EATCS DISC - this year it will be presented at PODC 2008.
Let's think up outstanding nominations!
