FYI: E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize Winner
E. W. Beth Dissertation Prize Winner
Since 2002, FoLLI (the Association for Logic, Language, and Information) awards the E. W. Beth Dissertation Prize to outstanding dissertations in the fields of Logic, Language, and Information. The dissertations are judged on the impact they made in their respective fields, breadth and originality of the work, and also on its interdisciplinarity. Ideally the winning dissertation will be of interest to researchers in all three fields.
The selection for the E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize for the year 2005 is concluded. After careful deliberation the committee has reached the following decision:
- The E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize 2005 has been awarded to Ash Asudeh
from the University of Canterbury for the thesis 'Resumption as Resource Management'. (PhD awarded in the year 2004 at the Stanford University).
FoLLI would like to congratulate the winner for his excellent thesis, and to thank all applicants who responded to the call for submissions and the members of the E. W. Beth Dissertation Prize Committee (Anne Abeillé, Johan van Benthem, Veronica Dahl, Nissim Francez, Valentin Goranko, Alessandro Lenci, Ewa Orlowska, Gerald Penn, Alberto Policriti (chair), Christian Retoré, Rob van der Sandt, and Wolfgang Thomas) for doing a great job.
An award ceremony will take place during the 17th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 05) in Edinburgh.

Finally, our thanks go to the E. W. Beth Foundation which kindly sponsors the prize.
