IEEE Software journal celebrates its 25th birthday in 2009, and Barry Boehm added to his long list of honors with a double mention in the prestigious periodical's list of best publications in the field over the last quarter century.
The judges' list included papers in five categories. Both the Boehm articles were in the “P” category – “pioneering ideas that had an impact.”
The judges' conclusions came out of an exhaustive multi-step process described on the IEEE Software website in detail, that pulled possible contenders from a wide variety of sources, and then used a carefully objectified process to make a final list.
Boehm, Viterbi School TRW Professor of Software Engineering, and Co-director of the USC Center for Systems and Software Engineering is no stranger to honors and distinctions. He has appointments both in the Department of Computer Science and the Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Most recently, he was named director of research of the new Systems Engineering Research Center, an 18-member consortium lead by USC and Stevens Institute of Technology, the nation’s first University Affiliated Research Center focused on systems engineering.
