Awards & Achievements

1996 - ACM Fellow Tanenbaum has made exceptional contributions to computer science education (textbooks, Ph.D. students) and to research on operating systems for uniprocessors and distributed systems (MINIX, Amoeba.)

1994 - ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award For his influential contributions to computer science education, especially in computer systems. Professor Tanenbaum has written five textbooks in the areas of computer architecture, networks, and operating systems, and he has developed many software systems, most notably MINIX, specifically for educational use. These textbooks and software systems are in wide use internationally. He has also produced Ph.D. students who themselves are successful educators and researchers in computer systems.

1994 - Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences

Overview

Andrew S. Tanenbaum focuses on Operating system, Distributed computing, Computer security, Embedded system and Dependability. As part of one scientific family, Andrew S. Tanenbaum deals mainly with the area of Operating system, narrowing it down to issues related to the Reliability, and often Process. Particularly relevant to Fault tolerance is his body of work in Distributed computing.

His studies deal with areas such as Ubiquitous computing and Internet privacy as well as Computer security. His research investigates the connection between Embedded system and topics such as Software fault tolerance that intersect with issues in Fault indicator and Segmentation fault. His work deals with themes such as Resource and Message passing, which intersect with Dependability.

Between 2007 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Distributed Operating Systems (1160 citations)
  • Enhanced operating system security through efficient and fine-grained address space randomization (199 citations)
  • Classifying RFID attacks and defenses (149 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • The Internet

His primary scientific interests are in Distributed computing, Operating system, Computer security, Software and Dependability. His work in the fields of Distributed design patterns overlaps with other areas such as Context. His Distributed design patterns study combines topics in areas such as File server, Distributed operating system and File management.

His study in the field of Server, Scalability and Compiler is also linked to topics like Flexibility. His Computer security research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ubiquitous computing, Redundancy and Middleware.
