Awards & Achievements

2011 - Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

2007 - A. M. Turing Award Together with E. Allen Emerson and Joseph Sifakis, for their role in developing Model-Checking into a highly effective verification technology that is widely adopted in the hardware and software industries.

2005 - Member of the National Academy of Engineering For contributions to the formal verification of hardware and software correctness.

1998 - ACM Fellow Edmund M. Clarke is the co-inventor of Model Checking (with his former student Allen Emerson). He and his graduate students helped make Model Checking a tool that can be used to verify finite-state concurrent systems of industrial complexity.

1998 - ACM Paris Kanellakis Theory and Practice Award Symbolic Model Checking
