New ILLC Research Projects

It looks like that the highly succesful year 2005 will be followed by an equally succesful year 2006 as we can already announce a number of awarded projects

Two projects are awarded in the NWO Open Competitie for the Exact Sciences:
- "Effective Focused Retrieval Techniques", by Jaap Kamps: one PhD student for 4 years.
- "Theoretical an Algorithmic Complexity; Tresholds in Computer Games", by Johan van Benthem: two PhD students (one at ILLC) for 4 years.

Moreover, Khalil Sima'an together with Dr. Andy Way (Dublin City University) succeeded in obtaining funding from the Science Foundation Ireland for 2 PhD students.

Then, a NWO Rubicon grant was given to dr. Sujata Ghosh from Kolkata, India. The grant implies the funds for a 1 year appointment as a postdoc at ILLC. Sujata Ghosh will start working here August 1 but will firstly be our guest in the month June.

Finally we are happy to announce the award of a second Rubicon grant to Troy Lee, former PhD student of Harry Buhrman. He will use this grant to do research at the Université Paris.
