The AITO Test of Time Award
In 2016, AITO established an annual Test of Time Award to recognize a research contribution that had a lasting impact on the field. The award is given by AITO at the ECOOP conference to the authors of an ECOOP paper published 20 years earlier.
The award will be given by a three person committee composed of
- a member of the AITO executive committee
- a member of the organizing or program committee of the year in question
- a member of the organizing or program committee of the year when the award will be given
