Turing Award

The Turing Award

The ACM A.M. Turing Award is an annual prize given by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) to "an individual selected for contributions of a technical nature made to the computing community".[1] It is named after Alan Turing and is given each year in New York City. It is the highest award that could be given to a computer scientist.[2] and the "Nobel Prize of computing".[3]


The first Turing Award was given in 1966 to Alan Perlis, a teacher at Carnegie Mellon University. It has been given every year since.

The first recipient, in 1966, was Alan Perlis, of Carnegie Mellon University. Frances E. Allen of IBM, in 2006, was the first female recipient in the award's forty-year history.[4][5][6]
