UBC Computer Science Professor and Associate Dean of Science Gail Murphy, and UBC Computer Science alumnus Mik Kersten, are the co-recipients of the 2015 Aspect-Oriented Software Association (AOSA) 'Most Influential Paper from 10 Years Ago' Award. Their paper from AOSA '05 "Mylar: a degree-of-interest model for IDEs" was selected by a jury of committee members from AOSA '05 and MODULARITY '15, as well as two members from the AOSA steering committee. The award carries a financial prize of $1000, in memory of Robert France, and was announced at MODULARITY '15 in March, 2015. Here is a video of Mik's experience with developing Mylar.
Congratulations, Gail and Mik, for this distinction!
