Lero Professor Bashar Nuseibeh Named as Recipient of the 2015 ACM Distinguished Service Award

Lero announce Professor Bashar Nuseibeh, as recipient of the 2015 Distinguished Service Award by the US headquartered ACMLero (@leronews), has announced that Professor Bashar Nuseibeh, as the recipient of the 2015 Distinguished Service Award by the US headquartered ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery). ACM is the world's largest educational and scientific computing society with more than 100,000 members from industry, academia and government institutions around the world. 



Bashar Nuseibeh has been awarded a European Research Council Advanced Grant on "Adaptive Security and Privacy". The grant is for €2.5M over 5 years, and will be run collaboratively between Lero and The Open University.


Bashar Nuseibeh, who is also Professor of Software Engineering at the University of Limerick and Professor of Computing at The Open University, UK, won the award specifically for "key service contributions" to the software engineering community, including major editorial responsibilities in top journals and successful chairing of major technical events.



Dr Richardson Principal Investigator and Senior Lecturer at Lero, said: "Our research with industry for more than 10 years has allowed us to gain an understanding of the problems that occur and how they can be mitigated. We found that if managers are not proactive in implementing new global teaming practices they are putting their projects under threat of failure which ultimately could have an adverse effect on an organisation's competitive advantage, employee satisfaction, timescales and software quality."


Professor Nuseibeh was formerly Chair and Director of Research in Computing at The Open University (OU) where he continues to supervise students and assist with research direction. He is Visiting Professor at Imperial College London and the National Institute of Informatics, Japan. His research interests are in software requirements, engineering and design, software process modelling and technology, and technology transfer. He has published over 100 refereed papers and consulted widely with industry, working with organisations such as the UK National Air Traffic Services (NATS), Texas Instruments, Praxis Critical Systems, Philips Research Labs, and NASA.

The ACM SIGSOFT (Special Interest Group on Software Engineering) Distinguished Service Award is made to an individual who has "contributed dedicated and important service to the software engineering community". It will be presented in May at the 37th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2015) in Florence, Italy.



Professor Mike Hinchey who now assumes the title of Scientific Director of Lero said. "Bashar is an internationally recognised leader in Software Engineering, especially in the areas of Requirements Engineering and Software Security. These are two key areas of concern for Lero in addressing our research mission in Evolving Critical Systems so I am really excited that Bashar is joining us in Lero."



Lero, which is supported by Science Foundation Ireland, combines the best in Irish software talent by bringing together researchers from Dublin City University, Dundalk Institute of Technology, NUI Galway, NUI Maynooth, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, and University College Dublin.
