Call for nominations — IPEC Nerode Prize — Due March 1, 2017

The Nerode Prize is an annual prize for outstanding work in multivariate algorithmics and parameterized complexity, published in a recognized journal at least two and at most ten years ago. This year, I am the chair of the prize committee, and will be collecting nominations by email until the deadline of March 1, 2017. Please think of any past work in this area that deserves to be recognized by this prize, and send me your nominations.

For detailed prize rules, see the linked EATCS page. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a contact at EATCS who can update the page with this year's committee and dates, but that information can be found instead at
