South African honorary degree for Wendy Hall

Wendy Hall has received an honorary degree from the University of Pretoria, recognizing her pioneering work in hypermedia and web technologies, and her leadership in computer science worldwide.

The honorary degree of PhD was awarded to Professor Hall at the University's autumn degree ceremony in April 2007. The citation stated: 'Her pioneering contribution was to customise links, enabling the system to establish relationships between data and to store links as entities in their own right. Now the new field of Web Science will again revolutionise how we think about knowledge and information, drawing inspiration from nature or biology forevolution and growth and encompassing disciplines such as psychology and social and political science.'

The citation noted that Professor Hall's connection with the University of Pretoria dates from the early 1990s when she presented graduate courses in hypermedia as part of the new MSc(IT) degree. She was presented for her degree by Professor Judith Bishop, an alumnus of the University of Southampton, who also taught in the School of Electronics and Computer Science in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
