Robert Marco Tomasulo (October 31, 1934 – April 3, 2008) was a computer scientist, and the inventor of the Tomasulo algorithm. Tomasulo was the recipient of the 1997 Eckert–Mauchly Award "[f]or the ingenious Tomasulo's algorithm, which enabled out-of-order execution processors to be implemented."
On January 30, 2008, Tomasulo spoke at the University of Michigan College of Engineering about his career and the history and development of out-of-order execution. The seminar, believed to be his last public appearance, can be viewed at http://inst-tech.engin.umich.edu/media/index.php?sk=tomasulo.
