Mueller Named Member of IEEE Golden Core

Congratulations to Dr. Frank Mueller, Professor of Computer Science in the NC State Department of Computer Science, on being named a member of the IEEE Computer Society’s Golden Core.
The Golden Core is an elite group who are recognized for their outstanding service to the society.  This special distinction was created in 1996 by the society’s Board of Governors to help celebrate the society’s 50th anniversary.
The first class of the Golden Core members consisted of approximately 500 persons who served the society in significant ways throughout its 50 years.  Each year a much smaller number of additional persons are added, making the Golden Core group a permanent roster of the principal contributors to the society’s success.
The Golden Core designation is obviously a play on the word “core”, representing both the magnetic core memory, and the “corps” of dedicated volunteers and staff who have made the society the world’s preeminent association of computer professionals
Mueller joins Dr. Mladen Vouk, Head of the Department of Computer Science, and Associate Vice Provost for Information Technology at NC State, who was named a member of the Golden Core in 2011.  For more information on the Golden Core, including a list of all past recipients, click here.
