About Cor Baayen
The Cor Baayen Young Researcher Award is named after the first president of ERCIM and the ERCIM 'president d'honneur'. Cor Baayen played an important role in its foundation. Cor Baayen was the scientific director of the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI) in the Netherlands, from 1980 to 1994.
Baayen joined the institute in 1959 as a researcher of the department of pure mathematics, where he became group leader in 1965. As the scientific director, Cor Baayen convinced the government to include CWI in a program that stimulated Dutch computer science research. He initiated or stimulated several new research areas including cryptography, computer algebra and performance analysis.
