William C. Carter Award

The William C. Carter Award is presented annually since 1997 to recognize an individual who has made a significant contribution to the field of dependable computing through his or her graduate dissertation research. The award honors the late William C. Carter, a key figure in the formation and development of the field of dependable computing. The award is sponsored by IEEE Technical Committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing (TC-FTC) and IFIP Working Group on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance (WG 10.4). To qualify, a paper based on the student's dissertation must have been submitted to a DSN Symposium as a regular paper with the student as the first author. Both current and former graduate students, no more than two years past completion of their dissertations, are eligible. A dissertation advisor wishing to nominate a student should submit the nomination form which can be found through the conference website at www.dsn.org. All Carter Award submissions accepted as regular papers to the DSN Symposia are evaluated by the Steering Committee of the Conference.
