Call for Nominations: 2018 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.
Nominations for the 2018 award are now being solicited. The contribution must have appeared in a paper or papers published within the past 25 years. Thus, for the 2018 award, the cut-off date is January 1, 1993. In addition, the contribution must not yet have received recognition via a major award, such as the Turing Award, the Kanellakis Award, or the Gödel Prize. While the contribution can consist of conference or journal papers, journal papers will be given a preference. Self- nominations are excluded. The 2018 award will be presented at ICALP 2018, the International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming.
