Computer scientists elevated to IEEE Fellows

In late 2017, IEEE (the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) released its 2018 list of newly elevated Fellows. We are pleased to note that three University of Wisconsin-Madison CS faculty members and one alumna are among those chosen. The IEEE Grade of Fellow is given by the Board of Directors to a IEEE member with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. 

We congratulate the following for their accomplishments:
