Frank van Harmelen (along with Maarten de Rijke, UVA) has been appointed as member of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences (KNAW). Besides a personal honour for both of them this is also important for our discipline, since Computer Science has until now been very underrepresented in the KNAW membership. It is the first time that two Computer Scientists have been appointed as new members.
See here for short profiles of Maarten and Frank.
