Chairwoman of Awards Committee

Frances Allen Award

AEPIA aims to give greater visibility to women researchers in the field of Informatics in general and Artificial Intelligence in particular. It must be the job of public bodies and information technology associations to promote the presence of women in the classrooms of our centres. This award is intended to promote the great work of scholarship holders, professors and researchers to serve as an example to future students of computer science studies.

Frances E. Allen is an American scientist, first woman to win the Allan Turing Award in 2006. Expert in compilers, code optimization and parallelization, her name is intended to pay homage to pioneering women in research and work in computer science, almost always identified with men.
