On 24th June 2009, UNESCO hosted the “Faites de la science” (“Do Science”) competition at its Paris headquarters. For a day, middle and high school students presented a scientific experiment to a jury made up of researchers, professors, teachers, and science enthusiasts. As a partner in the competition, the Inria (the French national institute for research in computer science and control) was in attendance, particularly through the presence of one of its researchers, Thierry Vieville, jury member for a day.
The European Association of Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) will present Gérard Huet with the 2009 Award on 9 July in Rhodes. This award comes in recognition of a long career dedicated to computer science punctuated with numerous breakthroughs.
