Dear PODC community,

the new issue of the Bulletin of the EATCS is a special one: we celebrate the Golden Jubilee! 

In this special issue, Giorgio Ausiello looks back on the 50-year history of the EATCS, and the issue also includes a historical article, written by Ute and Wilfried Brauer, for the Silver Jubilee of the EATCS.

We also invited several members of the community for an interview, and I would like to thank Robert Cori, Leslie Goldberg, Mariangiola Dezani-Ciancaglini, Anne Driemel, Christos H. Papadimitriou, Jean-Eric Pin, Eva Rotenberg, Grzegorz Rozenberg, and Paul Spirakis very much for sharing their perspectives, thoughts and memories with us. 

As usual, the Bulletin includes technical columns and other typical contents such as book reviews, conference reports, and award announcements. In particular, check out Luca Trevisan’s conversation with Scott Aaronson, the distributed computing column on Redbelly Blockchain, the education column about Tobias Kohn’s minimal instruction set for education, or the logics column by Kenichi Morita on making reversible computing machines in reversible cellular space. 

You find the new issue online at .

I wish everyone an interesting read and for those who participate, enjoy the EATCS celebrations in Paris!
