The EATCS Award for 2011 will go to Boris (Boaz) Trakhtenbrot for "his decisive influence on the developments of algorithms, and, more generally, of computer science as a whole in many ways." You can read a scientific "autobiography" written by Boaz for an LNCS volume devoted to his 85th birthday here (requires access to LNCS). I found the piece a fascinating read.
Congratulation to Boaz.
Here is what the EATCS web site says:
The EATCS Award is awarded annually to honor a scientist with widely recognized contributions to the field of theoretical computer science throughout a distinguished scientific career. The Committee, consisting of Pavlos Spirakis (Chair), Friedhelm Meyer auf der Heide and Eugenio Moggi in charge of evaluating the nominations to the 2011 EATCS Award has come to the decision to honor Boris (Boaz) Trakhtenbrot with the EATCS Award 2011 for his decisive influence on the developments of algorithms, and, more generally, of computer science as a whole in many ways.The decision has been unanimously approved by the EATCS Council. The Award will be assigned during a ceremony that will take place in Zürich (Switzerland) during ICALP 2011 (July 4-8, 2011).
