Faculty of Mathematics professor Ihab Ilyas named ACM Fellow

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

University of Waterloo Faculty of Mathematics professor Ihab Ilyas has been named a 2020 ACM Fellow for his contributions to data cleaning and data integration.

The Association for Computing Machinery is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting computing educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM fellowships are conferred to the top one percent of the association’s members, and the prestigious recognition indicates excellence in technical, professional and leadership contributions that advance computing, promote the exchange of ideas, and further ACM’s objectives.

This year the Association for Computing Machinery named 95 members as ACM Fellows for wide-ranging and fundamental contributions in artificial intelligence, cloud computing, computer graphics, computational biology, data science, human-computer interaction, software engineering, theoretical computer science, and virtual reality, among other areas. Fellows are nominated by their peers, with nominations reviewed by a distinguished selection committee.

“Congratulations to Ihab on receiving this much-deserved recognition from ACM,” said Raouf Boutaba, professor and Director of the Cheriton School of Computer Science. “His fundamental contributions to data cleaning and data integration have had significant and lasting impacts, both in shaping the direction of data systems research and in the development of technologies adopted by industry.”
