I’ve been meaning to post this note from Dan Joyce to the SIGCSE Members list.  Congratulations to Matthias and Gordon! Both well-deserved honors!

It is my pleasure to announce the 2011 SIGCSE award winners.

The SIGCSE Award for Lifetime Service to the Computer Science Education Community has been awarded to Gordon Davies, Department of Computing, Open University (retired).

The SIGCSE Award for Outstanding Contribution to Computer Science Education has been awarded to Matthias Felleisen, Trustee Professor at College of Computer Science, Northeastern University. (Ed note: Known for his TeachScheme approach, DrScheme, and the new Racket environment.)

Professor Felleisen will give a plenary address at the Technical Symposium.

Professor Davies will address the First Timer’s luncheon at the Technical Symposium.

These awards will be presented at the 42nd SIGCSE Technical Symposium being held in Dallas, Texas, USA, March 9-12, 2011.

I am sure you will join me in congratulating these outstanding educators.
