Presburger Award for Young Scientists in theoretical computer science

Starting in 2010, the European Association of Theoretical Computer Scienc e (EATCS) established the Presburger Award, conferred annually at the International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming (ICALP) to a young scientist for outstanding contributions in theoretical computer science, documented by a published paper or a series of published papers. The Award is named after Mojzesz Presburger who accomplished his path-breaking work on decidability of the theory of addition (which today is called Presburger arithmetic) as a student in 1929.

Nominations for the Presburger Award can be submitted by any member or group of members of the theoretical computer science community except the nominee and his/her advisors for the master thesis and the doctoral dissertation. Nominated scientists have to be at most 35 years at the time of the deadline of nomination (i.e., for the Presburger Award of 2012 the date of birth should be in 1976 or later).

Nominations should be sent by December 31st, 2011. For further information: http://www.eatcs.org/index.php/presburger
