## Gabor Korchmáros

Gábor Korchmáros works as a Full Professor at the Università della Basilicata, Potenza, Italy, since 1987. The essential part of his scientific work has been in finite geometry and on algebraic curves over finite fields which have relevant applications to coding theory and cryptography. He is the author of 140 scientific papers and the recent book *Algebraic Curves over a Finite Field* (with J. W. P. Hirschfeld and F. Torres; Princeton University Press, xviii + 696 pp., 2008). Korchmáros received a Ph.D. degree in mathematics from Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, in 1972, Candidate's degree in mathematics from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1980, and a Doctorate degree in mathematics from the same academy in 2000. He did a scholarship at the Centro Lincei Interdisciplinare of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Rome, Italy, in 1973, and was awarded the "Grünwald" prize by the János Bolyai Mathematical Society in 1976 and the "Euler Medal 2008" by the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications, Canada. He is on the Editorial Boards of the journals Advances in Geometry (de Gruyter-Berlin-New York), Designs Codes and Cryptography (Springer Verlag), Mediterranean Journal of Mathematics (Birkhauser Verlag, Basel), Contributions of Discrete Mathematics (Calgary, Canada), and International Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics (Research India Publications). Korchmáros is the Head of the International Ph.D. Program in Mathematics “János Bolyai” (Università della Basilicata, University of Szeged (Hungary), Seconda Università di Napoli (Caserta), Università di Perugia, Università Cattolica di Milano (Brescia)).
