Prof Dame Wendy Hall DBE, CBE, FBCS, FIEE, FREng has been Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton, UK since 1994. Wendy took a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Southampton in 1977 and an MSc in Computer Science at City University in 1986. She has been awarded honorary Doctorates of Science (DSc) from Oxford Brookes University, University of Glamorgan, University of Pretoria, University of Loughborough and an Honorary Fellowship of Cardiff University.

Wendy was a Member of the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) 1997-2002,
President of the British Computer Society (BCS) 2003-4, and
Senior Vice President of the Royal Academy of Engineering 2005-8.

In 2008 Wendy is President of the ACM, the first non-North American to hold the post; one of 22 people representing all sciences as a member of the Scientific Council of the European Research Council; an advisor to the Prime Minister of the UK on cross-departmental strategic issues with a medium to longer term approach as a member of the UK Prime Minister's Council for Science and Technology; and since 1997 she has been one of 16 members of the committee responsible for the annual WWW conferences to promote technologies for the world wide web, as a member of IW3C2.

While working on all the committees required to achieve these honours, Wendy has always fought for diversity across both gender and nationality - where both women and non-Americans have usually been the underdogs. Wendy has also fought for a balance between the values of both academic researchers and practitioners in both professional bodies for computing and while directing research agendas.

Wendy first came to the attention of these bodies because she applied academic computer science research techniques to the real world problems of librarians and information scientists who were trying to curate the records of the past while applying modern technology to make them available to today's users. Wendy was one of the first computer scientists to undertake serious research in multimedia and hypermedia, and she has been at its forefront ever since. The influence of her work has been significant in many areas including digital libraries, the development of the Semantic Web, and the emerging research discipline of Web Science.
