2017 IEEE CS TCSE Distinguished Synergy Award

Presented to Vio Onut representing IBM CAS

BM CAS, founded at the IBM Toronto Lab, has initiated and sustained software engineering research partnerships for over 25 years. Its steady efforts with the CASCON annual conference has fostered a large, diverse, and vibrant research community, leading to collaborative projects, innovative technology, joint publications, and influential consortia. These collective outcomes and individual perspectives are chronicled in a book that documents the lasting impact of the CAS ecosystem. This collaboration model has influenced not only the Canadian software research and industrial landscape, but has been adopted in many CAS centers around the world.
