The University of Washington’s Susan Eggers has received the 2018 Eckert-Mauchly Award for her contributions to the field of computer architecture.

The award, sponsored by ACM and the IEEE Computer Society, is the most prestigious honor in the computer architecture community.

Eggers' work has focused on simultaneous multithreaded processor architectures and multiprocessor memory sharing and coherency. She played a prominent role in the development and commercialization of simultaneous multithreading (SMT) as a way to boost parallelism and performance.

Eggers also made significant contributions in cache coherency, a technique for maintaining consistent data across shared-memory multiprocessors.

The award was presented to Eggers Tuesday during the 45th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA 2018) in Los Angeles.
