The William C. Carter Award is
presented annually since 1997 to recognize an individual who has made a
significant contribution to the field of dependable computing through
his or her graduate dissertation research. The award honors the late
William C. Carter, a key figure in the formation and development of the
field of dependable computing. The award is sponsored by IEEE Technical
Committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing (TC-FTC) and IFIP Working Group on
Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance (WG 10.4). To qualify, a paper
based on the student’s dissertation must have been submitted to the DCC
Symposium within DSN as a regular paper with the student as the first
author. Both current and former graduate students, no more than two
years past completion of their dissertations, are eligible. A
dissertation advisor wishing to nominate a student should
make an application. All Carter Award submissions
accepted as regular papers to
the DCC Symposium are evaluated by the Steering Committee of the
