Great news! Pascal Van Hentenryck has just been awarded the 2002 INFORMS Computing Society (ICS) prize for research excellence in the interface between operations research and computer science. INFORMS is the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences; its Computing Society has awarded this prize since 1986.
The objectives of this prize are (1) to promote the development of high-quality work advancing the state of the art in the operations research/computer science interface; (2) to publicize and reward the contributions of those authors/researchers who have advanced the state of the art; and (3) to increase the visibility of excellent work in the field.
Pascal is being honored for his many contributions to the field of constraint programming and its integration with operations research.
Many, many congratulations, Pascal!
