One of the most prestigious awards in Computer Science is the ACM Fellowship, annually awarded by ACM to members for their contributions to computing that are driving innovations across multiple domains and disciplines.

According to a recent press release from ACM "the 2013 ACM Fellows, from the world’s leading universities, corporations, and research labs, have achieved advances in computing research and development that are accelerating the digital revolution and impacting every dimension of how we live, work, and play…worldwide."

Ingemar is thus joining highly recognized researchers from world leading universities such as MIT, UCLA, San Diego, Berkeley etc. Another ACM Fellow at DIKU is professor Mikkel Thorup.

DIKU congratulates Ingemar Cox, who was awarded the prize for his "Contributions to computer vision, image retrieval, and digital watermarking". Ingemar Cox recently held an inaugural lecture about these subjects.

The ACM newsflash a.o. states:

ACM has recognized 50 of its members for their contributions to computing that are driving innovations across multiple domains and disciplines.

ACM President Vinton G. Cerf celebrated the impact of innovations achieved by this year’s ACM Fellows,. “We recognize these scientists and engineers, creators and builders, theorists and practitioners who are making a difference in our lives,” he said. “They’re enabling us to listen, learn, calculate, and communicate in ways that underscore the benefits of the digital age. Their advances have led to opportunities for improved healthcare, enhanced security, expanded interactions, and enriched lifestyles. Some recipients have also led efforts to extend computing across continents and countries including Brazil, China, and Germany.”
