Appointment of professor Jouko Väänänen

The ILLC is pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Jouko Väänänen, starting 1 September 2006, as a full professor in Mathematical Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics. This chair has been held before him by professors Brouwer, Heyting, Troelstra, and De Jongh.

Professor Väänänen is an international expert in model theory and set theory, and the founder of the distinguished Helsinki School in generalized quantifier logics and abstract model theory. His interests and influence also extend into computer science (data base theory) and natural language (game-theoretic semantics). A central theme in Professor Väänänen's current research are logical games, which fit right at the heart of ILLC's research activities. But he will also be a visible member of our community in many other respects, as will become clear in the months to come.

Professor Jouko Väänänen will come to work in Amsterdam halftime from September 1st until December 31st, and fulltime from January 1st onwards.
