Ono awarded the 2014 Albert E. Levy Scientific Research Award
Ken Ono, the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics, has been awarded the 2014 Albert E. Levy Scientific Research Award. The annual award, which is administered by the Emory University Research Committee, recognizes outstanding research by Emory faculty members in scientific disciplines including mathematics, the physical sciences, and the biological sciences. Each year awards are given to a junior and a senior Emory faculty member. Professor Ono is the 2014 recipient for the senior award. He is recognized for his transformational contributions to Number Theory.
Agichtein awarded 2013 BCS/ BCS IRSG Karen Spärck-Jones Award
Dr. Eugene Agichtein has been awarded the 2013 British Computer Society Karen Spärck-Jones Award. The award is named after Professor Karen Spärck-Jones, for her contributions to the field of information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing. Dr Agichtein is being recognized for several important contributions he has made in search and large scale web text data mining with a focus on user interaction data. His work has included demonstrating how models of human information interactions can be inferred by leveraging computational techniques on what are large-scale but also noisy behaviour records. Dr. Agichtein will receive the award at the 2014 European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2014) in Amsterdam, where he will be the opening keynote speaker. The full award citation is posted on the British Computer Society website.
