The S. Barry Cooper Prize is awarded to a researcher who has contributed to a broad understanding and foundational study of computability by outstanding results, by seminal and lasting theory building, by exceptional service to the research communities involved, or by a combination of these. This award is presented every two to three years, with the presentation taking place at the International Conference Computability in Europe (CiE).

The Prize is named in honor of S. Barry Cooper, the founding President of the Association Computability, in recognition of his vision of the fundamental concept of computability that brought together several different research communities. The awardee shall be invited to the next annual CiE conference to give an invited talk and will be presented with an award plaque on this occasion.

Nominations may be made by any member of the scientific community and any such member can be nominated. Nomination letters can have multiple signatories and should provide a motivation for awarding the prize to the nominee, precisely stating their outstanding results, their seminal and lasting theory building, and/or their exceptional service to the research communities involved.
