for the EATCS-IPEC Nerode Prize 2014
for outstanding papers in the area of multivariate algorithmics.

*Deadline for Nominations:* January 1, 2014.

*Decision:* May 1, 2014.

The award is presented annually with the presentation taking place at
IPEC (International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation).
IPEC 2014 takes place within ALGO 2014, September 10-12, 2014, Wroclaw,

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 was awarded for the first time, see

*Award Committee *

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

Georg Gottlob (Oxford University),
Jan Arne Telle (University of Bergen),
Peter Widmayer (ETH Zurich, chair),

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.

*Eligibility *

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 encompasses, 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 *

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
