Most Influential Paper selection

Leganés-Madrid, Spain
21-25 September 2010

Also this year, the VL/HCC community is continuing the tradition of honoring research papers whose appearance in this conference had important influences on VL/HCC research or commerce. Because having an important influence can only be determined over time, the papers being nominated are from past decades.

We have two award categories: 

We need your help in nominating papers from either or both of these categories that have had a truly important, long-term impact on VL/HCC research or commerce. As the long-term visionary group, we think you're more likely than anyone to know of well qualified papers. Please nominate some!

To nominate a paper, just send an email containing answers to the following questions to
vlhcc10mip at gmail.com

The tables of contents of the relevant conferences can be found by following the links above. 

The questions/criteria are:

1. VL full paper title and authors (Must be a refereed full paper at VL, HCC, or VL/HCC -- not a keynote, not a panel, not a short paper, etc.):
2. What year did the paper appear?
3. What was the paper's big, long-term, or unique impact on VL/HCC research or commerce?
4. The paper awarded can win the award in one of these two ways:
    4a. It is the only, or first, or first important paper on the influential topic.
    4b. It is just one of a sequence of papers published multiple places that had a big influence on VL/HCC research or commerce.  However, if there have been multiple communities where the work has been published, the research needs to be strongly situated in the VL/HCC community by virtue of many papers on the topic having been published at VL/HCC.  Of course, the nominated paper must satisfy all the other above criteria as well.
    Which of the above was it -- 4a or 4b?  Please explain.

Note: Concrete evidence of impact would be very helpful.  (eg, Google Scholar citation counts, etc.)

Deadline for nominations is Monday May 31
It would be helpful to have them earlier though.
