The University of Nantes recently presented Pascal Van Hentenryck with the title of Doctor Honoris Causa at the 2011 ceremony of the doctors at the Cité des Congrès de Nantes. In the University’s 50th year, Pascal was the sole recipient of this prize and the first computer scientist to ever receive it. This is Pascal’s second doctor honoris causa, the first from the Université catholique de Louvain in 2008. The ceremony and Pacal’s talk are available (in French) on the University’s website and on YouTube.
