Xie Named Senior Member of IEEE and ACM

Congratulations to Dr. Tao Xie, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, on recently being elevated to Senior Member grade of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).  Xie was also named a Senior Member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
As an IEEE Senior Member, Xie is among a elite group in IEEE, as fewer than 8% of the IEEE’s 400,000 members hold this prestigious grade of membership.  Senior membership requires experience reflecting professional maturity as an engineer, scientist, educator, technical executive, or originator in IEEE-designated fields for a total of 10 years.  Also, members must demonstrate five years of significant performance.
The ACM Senior Member Program, initiated in 2006, includes members with at least 10 years of professional experience who have demonstrated performance that sets them apart from their peers through technical leadership, and technical or professional contributions.
As one of ACM’s prestigious Advanced Member Grades, ACM Senior Member status recognizes the top 25% of ACM Professional Members for their demonstrated excellence in the computing field.  Along with Fellows and Distinguished Engineers, Scientists, and Members, ACM’s Senior Members join a distinguished list of colleagues to whom ACM and its members look for guidance and leadership in computing and information technology.
