ER Fellow Award 2020 – Palazzo & Stefano Rizzi

Gostaria de compartilhar com vocês esta notícia, é uma grande satisfação ser reconhecido pelas Instituições em que tenho dedicado tanto esforço e recebido tanto em retorno delas. Primeiro foi o reconhecimento pela SBC e agora pelo grupo da Modelagem Conceitual. Me lembro da leitura do artigo seminal do Peter Chen no ACM Transactions on Database Systems,Vol. 1, No. 1, The entity-relationship model—toward a unified view of data quando estava terminado o mestrado aqui no PPGC da UFRGS. Quarenta e quatro anos após, ser reconhecido pela comunidade como tendo oferecido uma contribuição importante é um orgulho. Certamente a UFRGS e os colegas de Banco de Dados contribuíram para que isto tivesse sido possível.
