ACM has named 56 members as 2018 ACM Fellows for both theoretical and specific achievements in computer architecture, mobile networks, robotics, and systems security, underpinning the technologies that define the digital age and have had significant ramifications in our professional and personal lives.

This year's Fellows were lauded for contributions in areas that include accessibility, augmented reality, algorithmic game theory, data mining, storage, software, and the World Wide Web.

The Fellows were from universities, companies, and research centers in Finland, Greece, Israel, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.S.

Among them are the Georgia Institute of Technology's Amy S. Bruckman, who was lauded for contributions to collaborative computing and foundational work in Internet research ethics; the University of Rochester's Sandhya Dwarkadas, recognized for her work on shared memory and reconfigurability; and Indiana University's Katy Borner, who contributed methods and tools for rendering data into actionable insights.
