Richard Fujimoto was awarded the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Simulation (SIGSIM) Distinguished Contributions Award for 2013 at the Winter Simulation Conference in Washington, D.C., in early December.

This annual award recognizes one individual based on their overall contributions to the field of modeling and simulation, including technical innovations, publications, leadership, teaching, mentoring, and overall service to the community.

Fujimoto is a Regents' Professor in the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is also the chair of the School of Computational Science and Engineering and the interim director of the Institute for Data & High Performance Computing (IDH).

The ACM Special Interest Group on Simulation and Modeling seeks the advancement of the state-of-the-art in simulation and modeling. Simulation and modeling cut across a broad range of interests. SIGSIM joins each year with a variety of other organizations in co-sponsoring the Winter Simulation Conference, the premier conference in the field, and the Parallel and Distributed Simulation Conference (PADS).
