ERC Advanced Grant to Glynn Winskel

I just saw that Glynn Winskel has been awarded an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council for the period 1/05/2011-30/4/2016. The grant is for the project Events, Causality and Symmetry---the next generation semantics. (Extended Synopsis.)

This grant recognized one of the key players in the theory of concurrency over the last 20 years. Glynn's work on event structures, amongst other things, has had a lot of influence within my research community and it is good to see that this model plays a key role in the funded proposal. Glynn was also the director of BRICS, a research centre that had an enormous influence on TCS research in Europe and beyond.

Congratulations to Glynn!
