ACM and the IEEE Computer Society co-sponsor the Eckert-Mauchly Award, known as the computer architecture community’s most prestigious award.
Initiated in 1979, the award recognizes outstanding contributions to computer and digital systems architecture. It comes with a certificate and a $5,000 prize. The award was named for John Presper Eckert and John William Mauchly, who collaborated on the design and construction of the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC), the first large-scale electronic computing machine, which was completed in 1947.
