Ric Holt Early Career Achievement Award
MSR Awards

The Mining Software Repositories community has introduced a series of two awards, the MSR Ric Holt Early Career Achievement Award and the MSR Foundational Contribution Award.

MSR Ric Holt Early Career Achievement Award

This award recognizes outstanding junior researchers who have provided outstanding contributions in the area of mining software repositories. The award recognizes research outputs produced by candidates during the early stages of their career. To be eligible, a candidate’s most recent computer-related educational degree (baccalaureate, masters, or doctoral degree) must have been awarded on or after January 1, 2013. If the degree included a defense, the defense must have occurred on or after January 1, 2013. If the degree included a thesis, but did not require a defense, then the final submission of the thesis must have occurred on or after January 1, 2013. The award is named after Dr. Ric Holt (1941 – 2019) who was a professor at the University of Waterloo.

For the MSR 2019 Early Career Achievement Award, the recipient is Emad Shihab for contributions to the state of the art in research and practice in software quality assurance as well as outreach and education efforts throughout the international MSR community.

MSR Foundational Contribution Award

The MSR Foundational Contribution Award recognizes individuals, or groups of individuals, having produced fundamental contributions in the field of mining software repositories, which helped many others (not limited to the MSR community) to build on it to advance the state of the art. It could be a tool, a dataset, a repository, or a mixture of contributions opening new research areas. It is not a requirement that such a research contribution has been presented at the MSR conference at some point. Having received other recognitions for the same contribution does not preclude an individual to be nominated for the MSR Foundational Contribution Award.

For the MSR 2019 Foundational Contribution Award, the recipient is Katsuro Inoue for fostering a vibrant international community around software clone analysis and the development of the CCFinder clone detector, which has enabled countless others to do research involving code clones.

Nominations Procedure

The awards are based on nominations. Nomination letters must be sent via email, in PDF format, to the addresses:

ying.zou@queensu.ca;a.e.zaidman@tudelft.nl

Along with the nomination letter, the nominator must enclose between one and three reference letters. Letters cannot be from the nominator herself, and can be typically short reference letter (1-2 pages), although longer letters are welcome. Self-nominations are disallowed.

The nomination letter must contain:
