Prof Keith Jeffery presenting the 2007 Cor Baayen Award to Boris Motik
Boris Motik from University of Oxford has been awarded the 2007 Cor Baayen Award for a most promising young researcher in computer science and applied mathematics by ERCIM, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics.
In a tight competition with 17 finalists, ERCIM has awarded Boris Motik for the outstanding quality of his work concerning reasoning algorithms and systems for Description Logics (DLs) - a family of knowledge representation formalisms with applications in numerous areas of computer science. Boris's output is impressive: in spite of the fact that he only completed his PhD in 2006, he has already published more than 40 articles in leading international conferences and journals.
The Cor Baayen Award (link opens in a new window) is presented each year to a most promising young researcher in computer science and applied mathematics. The award was created in 1995 to honour the first ERCIM President. The award consists of a cheque for 5000 Euro together with an award certificate.
The presentation was made following the ERCIM directors' meeting in Warsaw by Prof Keith Jeffery of the Science and Technology Facilities Council who is currently president of ERCIM. STFC represent the UK in ERCIM. At the directors' meeting, Denmark were admitted to become the nineteenth country represented in ERCIM.
