In Memory of Cor Baayen

Cor Baayen

It is with great sadness that we learned that Cor Baayen, first president and co-founder of ERCIM, passed away on Wednesday, 22 May 2019. Baayen served as ERCIM president from 1991 to 1994. He was scientific director of CWI from 1980 to 1994. During this period, he played a key role in shaping computer science as a distinct scientific field. Under his leadership CWI transformed from a mathematical institute to a centre of expertise for both mathematics and computer science. Together with Alain Bensoussan from Inria and Gerhard Seegmüller from the former GMD, he founded ERCIM in 1989 with the aim of building a European scientific community in information technology.

European Training Network recruits 15 PhD students in the field of polynomial optimization problems

POEMA is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (2019-2022), offering 15 PhD positions starting from September 2019. The PhD positions will be at 11 European partners, on the subject of Polynomial Optimization, Efficiency through Moments and Algebra. The proposed PhD projects are investigating the development of new algebraic and geometric methods combined with computer algebra techniques for global non-linear optimization problems and their applications, in particularly, in smarter cities challenges, urban traffic management, water network management, energy flow control, or environmental monitoring.
Detailed descriptions of the project and application for the positions can be found at https://easychair.org/cfp/POEMA-19-22

Martina Lindorfer Receives the 2018 Cor Baayen Young Researcher Award

Martina Lindorfer was selected as the winner of the 2018 Cor Baayen Young Researcher Award. The award committee recognises Martina's impressive achievements and outstanding quality of her research in the field of systems security, especially the analysis of malicious software and mobile operating system vulnerabilities. Martina Lindorfer is a tenure-track assistant professor in the Security & Privacy group at TU Wien. Until recently, she was a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Security Group (SecLab) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, US. She received her PhD from TU Wien, where she was working at the International Secure Systems Lab (iSecLab). During her PhD, she was also a researcher with SBA Research, the largest research centre in Austria which exclusively addresses information security, where she was advised by Edgar Weippl, SBA Research’s research director.

ERCIM fall meetings & Digital Twins workshop

The 2018 ERCIM fall meetings, hosted by RISE SICS, will be held in Gothenburg on 7-8 October 2018. The meetings are held in conjunction with with the European Computer Science Summit (ECCS 2018). ERCIM is also organising a workshop on Digital Twins on 9 October 2018 from 9:00 - 12:30.
