EATCS Fellows class of 2015 named

The EATCS has recognized five of its members for their outstanding contributions to theoretical computer science by naming them as recipients of an EATCS fellowship.

The EATCS Fellows for 2015 are:
  • Artur Czumaj (University of Warwick, United Kingdom) for "contributions to analysis and design of algorithms, especially to understanding the role of randomization in computer science";
  • Mariangiola Dezani-Ciancaglini (Universit√† di Torino, Italy) for "distinguished and seminal achievements in formal methods and foundations of programming languages, introducing or developing new type systems for the lambda-calculus as well as for the pi-calculus and related calculi";
  • Thomas A. Henzinger (Institute of Science and Technology Austria) for "fundamental contributions to formal verification and synthesis of computer and biological systems";
  • Dexter Kozen (Cornell University, USA) for "pioneering and seminal work in fields as diverse as  complexity theory, logics of programs, algebra, computer algebra and probabilistic semantics";
  • Moshe Y. Vardi (Rice University, USA) for "fundamental and lasting contributions to the development of logic in computer science and exceptional services to the community of theoretical computer science."
The aforementioned members of the EATCS were selected by the EATCS Fellow Selection Committee, after examining the nominations received from our research community. The EATCS Fellow Selection Committee for 2015 consisted of
  • Rocco De Nicola (IMT Lucca, Italy),
  • Paul Goldberg (Oxford, UK),
  • Anca Muscholl (Bordeaux, France),
  • Dorothea Wagner (Karlsruhe, Germany; chair) and
  • Roger Wattenhofer (ETH Zurich, CH).
The EATCS Fellows Program was established by the association  in 2014 to recognize outstanding EATCS members for their scientific achievements in the field of Theoretical Computer Science.

The EATCS is very proud to have the above-mentioned members of the organization among its fellows.
