The annual Computer History Museum Fellow Awards program publicly recognizes individuals of outstanding merit who have significantly contributed to the development of computing broadly-defined. Chosen on the basis of accomplishment, Fellows are nominated by the Museum's community and selected by a panel composed of Museum staff, historians, industry peers, and other Computer History Museum Fellows. Each year, a who's who of the technology world assembles at the museum for a banquet and ceremony to honor these industry leaders who have forever changed the world with their accomplishments.
