Wojciech Szpankowski, Saul Rosen Distinguished Professor of Computer Sciences and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue, was chosen to give the fourth Flajolet lecture at the AofA 2020 meeting in Klagenfurt, Austria.
The Philippe Flajolet Lecture Prize for outstanding contributions to analytic combinatorics and analysis of algorithms is awarded every two years by the Analysis of Algorithms (AoA) community. The award recognizes sustained record of high impact, seminal contributions to the research areas most directly impacted by the work of Flajolet. Previous winners are Don Knuth (2014), Bob Sedgewick (2016), and Luc Devroye (2018).
The lecture was established in honor of the late Philippe Flajolet, the prodigious and much-loved French computer scientist who died in 2011.
Wojciech will deliver the Flajolet Lecture at the AofA 2020 meeting, which will be held June 15-18, 2019 in Klagenfurt, Austria.
