Bulletin of the EATCS, October 2006

The October 2006 issue of the Bulletin of the EATCS is now available on line. This 90th volume of the Bulletin marks an important date in the life of this publication in that it is the first volume that is available freely on the web from the moment of its publication. This is a one year open access experiment that I hope will be continued in the future. If you have not done so already, I warmly encourage you to become a member of the EATCS, also to support the open distribution of the Bulletin.

I firmly believe that having the Bulletin open access will further increase its quality and impact, turning it into an even more useful and widely read publication than it already is. Thanks to Vladimiro Sassone for his great editorial work on the Bulletin.

This issue of the Bulletin has at least two papers of direct interest to concurrency theorists (see the concurrency column and the programming languages column). I also enjoyed reading Leonid Libkin's contribution to the logic in computer science column.

Support the Bulletin, an open access publication in theoretical computer science, by, amongst other things, becoming a member of the EATCS and publishing articles in the Bulletin. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to write a piece for the concurrency column.
