Dear GAP Forum,

You may be interested to know that during the current ISSAC 2008 conference in
Linz "The GAP Group" 
was awarded the biannual "Richard Dimick Jenks Memorial Prize" for
Excellence in Software Engineering  Applied to Computer Algebra
( see http://www.sigsam.org/awards/jenks/ ).

The prize was received by Steve Linton, Alexander Konovalov and Frank Luebeck
on behalf of the whole GAP development and support community, a point that was
emphasised in our brief responses. 

With the prize we got 4 plaques as shown here:
We will keep these in the current four GAP centres in the name of *all* 
contributors to GAP. 

    Steve, Alexander and Frank.
