Test of Time Awards

The SIGCSE Board is pleased to announce the creation of an ACM approved SIG award to commemorate the 50th SIGCSE Technical Symposium to be held in Minneapolis, MN February 27-March 1, 2019.

The ACM SIGCSE Top Ten Symposium Papers of All Time Award recognizes the outstanding papers published in the first 49 Proceedings of the Annual ACM Technical Symposium.

  • First, community nominations were solicited through an open call to the community.
  • The nomination committee used these nominations along with other demographic information about the papers from the first 49 symposia to create a list of 20 papers for the public ballot. The list of papers is here .
  • The public ballot was distributed on January 14, 2019 and voting closed January 31, 2019. (Ballot available here to all SIGCSE members.)
  • The final top 10 ranking will be revealed at the symposium in Minneapolis and the coauthors of the top paper will receive a plaque, free conference registration for one co-author to accept the award and up to a total of $2,000 that can be used toward travel for all authors of the top ranked paper.
