CS Department Chair Fred Schneider to receive the 2017 Jean-Claude Laprie Award

Computer Science Professor Fred Schneider and his former PhD student, Richard Schlicting, will receive the 2017 Jean-Claude Laprie Award in Dependable Computing for their paper:

 "Fail-Stop Processors: An Approach to Designing Fault-Tolerant Computing Systems,” ACM Transactions on Computing Systems, 1(3), pp. 222-238., Aug. 1983

The award is given annually since 2012 by the IFIP Working Group 10.4 on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance, in honor of Jean-Claude Laprie (1944-2010) and, according to its charter, intends to “recognize outstanding papers that have significantly influenced the theory and/or practice of Dependable Computing.”
