Kurt Mehlhorn to Receive EATCS Award

The EATCS Award is awarded annually in recognition of a distinguished career in theoretical computer science.

The Committee, consisting of Emo Welzl (Chair), Eugenio Moggi and Paul Spirakis, of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science in charge of evaluating the nominations to the 2010 EATCS Award has come to the decision to honor Professor Kurt Mehlhorn with the EATCS Award 2010 for his decisive influence on the developments of algorithms, and, more generally, of computer science as a whole in many ways.

The decision has been unanimously approved by the EATCS Council.

The Award will be assigned during a ceremony that will take place in Bordeaux (France) during ICALP 2010 (July 5-12, 2010).
