I’m honored to have been nominated as a candidate for the EATCS council in the 2019 elections.
Theoretical Computer Science forms the core of the development of Computer Science. However, as a research community,
we are losing visibility and relevance. We are having fewer students interested in the theoretical aspects of computing.
Each time it is more difficult to get funding for basic research projects. The valuation of our publications is not always fair,
making them not competitive with other disciplines.
Although, the support of EATCS to high-quality conferences has (and is) helping a lot, I believe that EATCS should work futrther towards expanding
the programs in order to increasing the exposure to (an the valuation of) TCS to all levels of education and to different communities.
