25 September 2012

Thomas Schilling, studying for a PhD in the University’s School of Computing, won a Gold Award from the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for a poster and presentation in Copenhagen.

Thomas’ presentation, titled ‘Lambdachine: a trace-based just-in-time compiler for Haskell’, was judged to be the best of three finalists in the Student Research Competition. His prize included an award medal, US$500 cash and ACM membership.

His presentation was described as a “solid piece of engineering with interesting results” by Professor Doaitse Swierstra (Utrecht University), head of the competition’s judging panel.

The ACM Student Research Competition, sponsored by Microsoft Research, is a unique forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present their original research to industry experts.
