Call for Nominations: 2021 Alonzo Church Award for Outstanding Contributions to Logic & ComputationDeadline: Monday 1 March 2021
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 2021 award are now being solicited. The contribution must have appeared in a paper or papers published within the past 25 years. Thus, for the 2021 award, the cut-off date is January 1, 1996. In addition, the contribution must not yet have received recognition via a major award, such as the Turing Award, the Kanellakis Award, or the Goedel Prize. While the contribution can consist of conference or journal papers, journal papers will be given a preference. Self- nominations are excluded. The 2021 award will be presented at the ACM SIGLOG/IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science, LICS 2021, which is scheduled to take place in Rome in June/ July 2021.
