Candidate for the EATCS council - statement
I identify myself with one of the main objectives of the EATCS, which is to promote profound value of theoretical research in CS. Recognition of TCS among European funding institutions seems to me a natural consecutive goal.
I would like to support EATCS in its mission to promote highest academic standards in CS. This includes advocating for top CS conferences to be broadly recognized as the prime quality mark.
Certainly, both the conferences and the numerous scientific awards organized in association with EATCS have contributed greatly to the community. I fully appreciate this activity and would like to support the attempts to further increase the participation of top non-European researchers in the conferences organized in Europe.
