Presburger Award

In an old post I announced that the EATCS was about to initiate a young researcher award. I am happy to see that the call for nominations for the first Presburger Award has now been advertised. See here for the details. The award is meant for scientists in TCS who are 35 or younger.

The award is named after Mojzesz Presburger who accomplished his ground-breaking work on decidability of the theory of addition (which today is called Presburger arithmetic) as a student in 1929.

The award includes an amount of 1000 € and an invitation to ICALP 2010 for a lecture.

I hope you will take the time to nominate young scientists for the award. Who would be your favourite candidates?

Ok, just kidding.
