DRZ Director Named ACM Fellow

Markus Gross was recognized with the status of Fellow, ACM’s highest membership grade. His citation is “For contributions to computer graphics and animation.”

“The ACM Fellows Program helps to recognize ACM members who have made significant contributions to information technology, identify persons who are available for expert advice, advance computer science and information technology as respected disciplines, and improve the status of the recipients within the profession.“ The number of Fellows is very limited and the criteria for acceptance are very strict.

The induction of the ACM Fellows was held at the ACM Awards Banquet on Saturday, June 15, 2013, in San Francisco, California.
