Bertrand Meyer Recipient of 2010 Mills Award

ETH Zurich software engineering professor Bertrand Meyer, developer of the Design by Contract method of producing reliable software systems, has been named the winner of the 2010 Harlan D. Mills award. The Mills award recognizes researchers and practitioners who have demonstrated longstanding, sustained, and meaningful contributions to the theory and practice of the information sciences, focusing on contributions to the practice of software engineering through the application of sound theory. Meyer's citation reads: "for practical and fundamental contributions to object-oriented software engineering, software reuse, and the integration of formal methods into the above." Meyer has been active in pioneering modern ideas of software engineering and object technology on both the industrial and academic scenes. As co-founder of Eiffel Software (based in Santa Barbara, California), he led the development of tools and libraries totaling several millions lines of code, taught industrial seminars that introduced object technology to thousands of attendees, and provided consulting to companies and government agencies. As professor of software engineering at ETH Zurich (the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) since 2001, he introduced a new approach to the teaching of programming and is directing research on topics such as automatic testing, program proofs and concurrent programming.
