About the Association
European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) is an international organization founded in 1972. Its aim is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and results among theoretical computer scientists as well as to stimulate cooperation between the theoretical and the practical community in computer science.
Its activities are coordinated by the Council of EATCS, out of which a President, Vice Presidents, a Treasurer and a Secretary are elected. Policy guidelines are determined by the Council and the General Assembly of EATCS. This assembly is scheduled to take place during the annual International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming (ICALP), the conference of EATCS.
