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.

For further information see the ESSLLI 05 web page:

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

On behalf of FoLLI,

Raffaella Bernardi
