June Issue of the Bulletin of the EATCS

Continuing the open access policy of the EATCS, the June issue of the BEATCS is now available here for free download. I trust that you will find something of interest to you in this volume, which also features a little technical contribution by your truly.

Let me take this opportunity to encourage all of you to become members of the EATCS. Becoming a member is cheap (30 €) and easy. Moreover, by becoming a member you will support the activities of the TCS community at large not just in Europe, but across the world. These are busy times for the EATCS, and the organization needs your support to thrive.

For instance, I can tell you that, during its meeting at ICALP 2008 in Reykjavík, the EATCS Council decided to create a new Award for Young Researchers. The new award committee of the EATCS will soon define the details for the prize. The EATCS aims at having the rules set by ICALP 2009, so that after that conference, it can distribute the call for nominations, appoint the evaluation committee and set the deadlines with the aim to deliver the award for the first time at ICALP 2010. More news on the EATCS General Assembly held at ICALP 2008 will follow soon.
