Deadline for Nominations: January 1, 2013.

Decision: May 1, 2013.

The award is presented annually with the presentation taking place at IPEC
(International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation). IPEC 2013
takes place within ALGO 2013, September 2--6, 2013, Sophia Antipolis, France.

The Prize is named in honor of Anil Nerode in recognition of his major
contributions to mathematical logic, theory of automata, computability, and
complexity theory.

In 2013, the prize is awarded for the first time.

Award Committee.

The winning paper(s) is (are) selected by a committee of three members.
This year's committee consists of the following three people.

Georg Gottlob (Oxford University),
Rolf Niedermeier (TU Berlin, chair),
Peter Widmayer (ETH Zurich),

The Award Committee is solely responsible for the selection of the winner of
the award which may be shared by more than one paper or series of papers. The
Award Committee reserves the right to declare no winner at all.


Any research paper or series of research papers by a single author or
by a team
of authors published in a recognized refereed journal. The year of publication
should be at least two years and at most ten years before the year of
the award
nomination. The research work nominated for the award should be in the area of
multivariate algorithms and complexity meant in a broad sense, and
but is not restricted to, those areas covered by IPEC. The Award Committee has
the ultimate authority to decide on the eligibility of a nomination. Papers
authored by a member of the Award Committee are not eligible for nomination.


Nominations may be made by any member of the scientific community
including the
members of the Award Committee. A nomination should contain a brief
summary of
the technical content of each nominated paper and a brief explanation of its
significance. Nominations are done by an email to the Award Committee Chair
with copies to the members of the committee.
