Software Process Award named for Watts Humphrey

I read in the September 2011 issue of the IEEE Computer managazine that the IEEE Computer Society and the Software Engineering Institute co-sponsor a Software Process Award that is offered annually.   This is interesting and good news on two fronts.  First, it is the perfect recognition for Watss Humphreys contributions to the field.  Second, based on the list of previous winners (included below), it seems that the award is offered but not necessarily awarded annually.  It seems to me that many readers of this blog would be in a position to either make a nomination or be nominated.  Nominations have to have at least on endorsement.  If you are interested but need a little help, please do not hesitate to contact me.  If you have a good story, I might be willing to provide a nomination or endorsement. The IEEE website has only limited information and nominations are due by Octobut here is a link

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
