Each year, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) recognizes several of its members for their contributions to computing by naming them as Fellows. Today, 46 ACM members have been named as Fellows—and six of them are from Microsoft Research, representing four different labs worldwide.The press release for the announcement states that Microsoft Research’s new ACM Fellows have been recognized for achievements in software analysis, computer graphics, reasoning and decision-making, network control, and distributed computing.

Microsoft Research (MSR) recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, and, coincidentally, it was MSR Silicon Valley’s 10th anniversary. MSR Silicon Valley was created with a focus on distributed computing, broadly speaking, and as I think back over our first decade, I’m gratified at the breadth and depth of work we’ve done under the distributed-computing banner. That work spans many areas, and we’ve published it extensively, as is the norm at Microsoft Research.

This has been an incredible year for our lab in Cairo. The year started with a popular revolution that rocked all corners of the Egyptian society. The resulting hope for a better future translated into unusually high excitement and motivation among all Advanced Technology Labs Cairo team members.

It has been just more than six months since I joined XCG as its lab director. XCG is a unique Microsoft Research lab that consists of not only great researchers and program managers, as in other Microsoft Research labs, but also a relatively large and experienced engineering team. This combination of talent has created a culture in XCG to focus on big bets, as we also have the ability to make significant engineering investments
