The Katayanagi Prize

Via the Baconmeister (er.. the Quantum Pontiff), we hear that Christos Papadimitriou and Erik Demaine have received the Katayanagi Prize. Christos gets it for "research excellence":
The Katyanagi Prize for Research Excellence will be awarded annually to an established researcher with a record of outstanding, and sustained achievement.
and Erik gets it for "emerging research leadership":
The Katyanagi Emerging Leadership Prize will be awarded annually to an individual recognized as an emerging research leader.
Congratulations to both of them, (and do read the Dr. Dobbs interview with Christos, where he shows that he knows what "Guitar Hero" is :))
