  • Call for Nominations: 2020 Alonzo Church Award for Outstanding Contributions to Logic & Computation

    An annual award, called the Alonzo Church Award for Outstanding Contributions to Logic and Computation, was established in 2015. The award is for an outstanding contribution represented by a paper or by a small group of papers published within the past 25 years. This time span allows the lasting impact and depth of the contribution to have been established. The award can be given to an individual, or to a group of individuals who have collaborated on the research.

While the contribution can consist of conference or journal papers, journal papers will be given a preference. Self-nominations are excluded. The 2020 award will be presented at CSL 2021, the annual conference of the European Association for Computer Science Logic, which is scheduled to take place in Athens in January 2021.
